Re: New 6mm-06AI
This might be a little late... 6mmx06 is a fine cartridge'..., I always liked the .240 Wby Mag... It’s ballistic twin, and have found it a very good Yote/Deer popper. Personally, I think the twist and the bullets weight your wanting to shoot is a little weak for such a great long range cartridge… if you want a true Varminter buy a .220 Swift or a .223 WSSM. And as for barrel life, well…. I believe that will depend more on how you treat it. Me.... I think I'd add just a little more barrel so I could set it back in the future, one or two more times, especially if it turns out to be a real shooter.
Die's and other kit’…, along with preparation is pretty much up to you, buy what you think you can afford. Case preparation equipment maybe where to want to spend the bucks for a cartridge like the 6mmx06
Check with the guy’s that are shooting the 6mmx284 Win see what they like for their rifle, it’s another ballistic twin; you can pretty much follow suit.
