    We just need Winchester to chamber their Model 70 in the 6mm Remington. It will never happen, but would it not make one sweet rifle!

    Although I can't help with the standard 6mm Rem. I can say that the 6mm bore diameter is probably my favorite, in our two safes you'll find:

    DPMS LR-243 - .243wn
    WBY Vanguard -.243win
    LH Savage 110 - 6mmAI
    LH Remington 700LA - 6x284

    The LH Savage was originally chambered in .243win, then rechambered to .243AI before being rebarreled to 6mmAI. I'll see if I have a few pics on the home computer... stay tuned :D

    Mine is a Ruger 77 (tang safety) that was my grandpa's. I shot my first buck with it, and last weekend, my wife shot her first buck with it. She got a sad look on her face when I told her that it would have to be cleaned and put away until our sons are old enough to shoot their first bucks with it! Sorry, I don't have pictures - but it likes 100 grain partitions over RL 19. Some day, I will build a new 6mm rem for long range coyotes and pronghorn. One hell of a caliber!

    Great cartridge to start the kids going hunting, and one of my all time favorites.

    Newest build, still in process, is a 6mm Remmy with a 27 inch Shillen #7 straight taper in a Chote tactical stock.

    For the 'yotes around here. gun)

    Don't have many good loads yet. Please keep them coming.

    Rem700 LH LA 6mmAI case forming load of 48g RL22 and Berger 95 VLD. Used it antelope hunting last week and it was devastating. 2 inch exit hole from 350 yards.

    A friend's daughter had a cow elk tag and he wanted me to help him find a load with the 100 gr nosler partition. I chose RL-17 and was stunned at what this 24" barreled 6mm Rem did. Note I shot this load on three occasions to prove to me it was real, plus his daughter shot it practicing. It was super accurate and very consistent. Here are two groups on different days.

    The picture which showed the load data expired.

    Load for the 24" 6mm Rem was 45 gr of RL-17 and 100 gr partition for velocity of 3300 fps. Very accurate.

    Not ignoring you, not much of a picture loader. If my son drops by, maybe he'll help.

    Started life as a 600 Remington in .308. Brown Precision Kevlar stock from 30+years ago. Shilen Barrel cut to 20", light can't remember the contour. Gentry 3 position Safety, Canjar trigger. 2.5-8x Leupold, comes in right at 7.5lbs.

    Lot's of first deer, coyotes, antelope etc. over the years. Never chrono graphed any load. i should someday, but it shoots reasonably well.

    I killed my first deer, a 6 pt buck, with a Ruger #1V 6mm Remington. I used a 100 gr Hornady BTSP and I believe the load was 42.5 gr IMR 4350. I was in high school at the time and foolishly sold that rifle. I have since found another one with better wood than the original. This one is here to stay!

    I have a couple REM 700 bdl varmints. Never shot anything other than factory out of them.

    My go to rifle for white tail and yotes is a built 6mm REM I had built several years back. It's a SS REM action 26" Shilen#5.5 10 twist bedded in a HS precision with a jewel trigger.

    It shoots 95gr Berger's into tiny groups with 7828ssc with a CCI br2 primer.

    It shoots the 100gr game kings with 7828 just as well, I just prefer the Berger's.
