Not sure I'd go that fast they're liable to go poof. Keep in mind they will only tolerate somewhere around 312,000 RPM's.

Cool. Looks like the bolt is on the 'correct' side too. Very nice.

Looks like this gun can shoot 1k. All it took was getting the milo out. Good job Bro.

Re: Savage .243

Maybe you just need a longer 243 barrel, you have the brass and other goodies already. My 243 with the 107SMK's is pushing them at 3050fps and let's just say that's plenty flat. I'd not recommend the 1-7 twist probably a bit too tight and liable to see little gray poofs about 30-50 yards out without hits on the target. Are you going to rebarrel the action you have now? might think about a long action with the 6mm, heck my 243 is on a long action and it a good thing the COL of the rounds is 2.90" .010" off the lands and if your looking at a repeater while they will you may have to do a little work to get the AI case to feed but on the short action and seating the bullets out there a repeater is probably not in the thinking. Glad to see another 243 shooter! Later,

Kirk

Re: Savage .243

i'll use the same action, still up in the air about a specific 6mm round... i'll stick with this SA and im fine with a single shot, probly what i want to build it into, possibly a different stock.
