You mentioned 260Rem. My precision rifle is 260 Rem and it makes it easy. Probably better ones if you want to shoot competitively, but the 260R is easily capable of very good groups at that range and farther with little recoil. 1:8 twist or faster is a must if you want to shoot heavier bullets.

Hi everyone,
Im looking to have a new built on a rem 700 short action that I got.
Rifle will ne use for 600yrds range target.

Have a 284win, 7mm rem mag, 7mmm08, 2 308, one will give is action.

As you see im a 7mm fan and with the rem mag im well equiped for long range hunting.

I do think solding one 308 and go full custom but I like to use what I got at home.

Im looking at the 6mm dasher but im open to any idea.

I dont mind single feeding my rifle.
Even though I’m in hill country in the Appalachian foothills
I still like the old
6.5 Swede AI for my long range deer hunting
It’s an obscure one for sure
But I’ve always leaned to the odd ball stuff
Because it’s no fun to have the same thing as all the other people
Just my 2 penny worth

I would take a look at what the top F class shooters use at 600. Last time I was at nationals there was not a single Creedmore on the line, does that say something? The 6 Dasher and 6 XC are real popular. My thoughts have always been, I don't care how fast your bullet goes, rather can you consistently hit your target? 600 yard F class targets have a 6" 10 ring. If your gun isn't 1/4 moa or better putting 60 rounds in that will be tough. At my range it's not uncommon to have to clean all three matches to win. Often it comes down to X count.

By the way my range is in Rawlins, WY. Can you say wind?
6 XC 6 CM non identical twins as far as I am concerned.Same powder capicty and MV.

Without a doubt the 6BR family of cartridges... You can get 6BR brass from Lapua. ... the simplist is the 6 BR with Lapua brass....
If you go with a 6BR, find a competition smith who can give you a good "no-turn" chambering so no fireforming needed, and still extremely accurate.

All good idea to spend my money on 😁
6mm dasher, 260rem, 6xc and 223 are the one that tease me most.

Maybe I missed it but do you want to be competitive or just practice. Either way, 6 br , 6 bra, 6 dasher, 243 long throat and a fast twist is a good choice especially if wind is a factor . The extra velocity helps
