Re: Favorite Varmint Cartridge

I have a Cooper M54 Varminter in 22-250. My yard varmints are all 250 yds or less, and a 50gr Blitzking gets it done at ~3900fps. It is stupid accurate for a factory gun. In the ear at 175yds accurate....

Haha that tears them things up! My cousin is building a custom .22-250 and we are going to shoot 53gr V-MAXs at 3700fps with only a 22" barrel. It ought to do some demage too!

Re: Favorite Varmint Cartridge

Jud, first off agree on u with Remington! I do have twin ruger varmint guns in 220 swift and 243 that I love. My favorite though is 6-284 .270 tight neck, Remington 700 trued, jewel trigger set at 1.5 oz, 30" Hart straight taper 1 in 10 twist Berger 90 grains moly coated, 55 grains of R22 3625 at the muzzle have shot 1/2" groups at 300, 785 is longest groundhog. Installing 20 moa rail to extend range.

Haha Remingtons rule! Your 6-.284 sounds like a dream come true to me! Its got a Hart, Remington action, Jewell Trigger! The best in my opinion! What glass is mounted on it? I bet that thing stretches those groundhogs out launching a 90 at 3625! The accuracy is also great! Sounds like you got yourself a fine varmint getter. Never looked into a 6-.284 before but might have to now!
