The allure to a 6mm whatever is the high bc bullets from 100-115 grains. Even twisted correctly the 6mm rem due to its 2.233 long case will have too much bullet in the case or have to single feed.One thing for sure those wild cats will make you a really experienced hand loader out of ya
I think Fergus said he allready had a 244 rem he probally has lots of brass

The Case is too long to use good bullets
The OP, HAS,... a SHORT Action,.. Rem 700
FalseThe OP, HAS,... a SHORT Action,.. Rem 700
Even, the Creed with LONG 115 grain Bullets,... won't feed "well" !
UN-less, the Bullet is seated, "Deeply" in case.
Perhaps inferior is the wrong term.
That's why I shoot long 264 cal bullets out of a bigger case than a need morePerhaps inferior is the wrong term.
If the goal is shooting 95 grain partitions for deer and hogs both do so with fervor but this is Long range hunting so I always err on the side of long pointy bullets going where we want them too out a ways
How do you like the 25-284? Considering it for my next build but I wanted a short action.Im for anything on the 284 parent case just finished a 25- 284 , but Fergus said he all ready had the 244 rem a Barrell swap too 6 mm rem with a faster twist than his 1-12 everything stays the same
What I was afraid of. I really want the short action. If I build long Ima go with a long caliber. May just do the 25-284 and stay around the 110 hammer length or less.Might not work well with long bullets (short action). I've got a 25-284 chambered for the 131 B Jacks or Hammers. Feeds ok with a long 700 action, but had to mess with the feed rails a little. 284 cases are fatter.
