6x45, 6x47, 6x204?

So I have kinda fallen for a new toy the 6x45. But as with most loaders I am looking for more. I have a remington short action and am trying to decide on the barrel and caliber. I will shoot coyotes, prairie dogs, and maybe short range deer for my son in a year or two. Looking for any experience you have and any recomendations I like the 70 to 85 grain bullets. Already have an ar in 6x45.

I shoot a rather rare factory chambered LH Kimber of Oregon M84 in 6x47 and love the cartridge.
The seasonally run .222 Rem Mag brass is very nice quality and the neck up is a one pass operation.
My warmish loads include the 70gr NBT at 3270 and the 80gr TTSX at 3000 out of the 22" tube.
Wonderful cartridge for WT under 300 yards.

Might as well get the 6-284 105-108 bullets at 3500 fps or 87 grain v max at 4000 fps

Your 6-284 is way faster then mine. I only get 3900 with a 70 grain bullet.

That's interesting. I'm having a 6-284 built right now in a LW 24" tube rig.

I would be happy to get within 200fps of those speeds.

I have a 32 inch barrel and a bat action. Laupa brass also helps What powder are you using?

I'll be trying Magpro first but would like to try N570 and RL33 as well.

I'll be using necked down Lapua 6.5-284 brass and concentrating on 95gr and up VLD's.
