Don't forget to throw the 224 Valkryie into the mix......and the 6mmARC.... I'm not much into "either or" choices. More into this AND that....AND there.....AND here.....AND these....AND those..... UH, more popcorn, please.Okay folks, I’m here to stir the pot again! A while back I did a 7mm vs .30 cal poll and it got very lively in a good way. This poll now pits the .22 bore against the .24 (6mm). This would be a no brainer years ago for me (6mm obviously winning) but the ultra high bc .22 bullets out now change the game some, combined with the fact that in my home province of Saskatchewan it used to be you couldn’t hunt big game with .22 caliber rifles of any kind and now that had changed, for better or worse.
the big cased .22s and the 6mms have tons of overlap now in application and performance. If you could only own a rifle in ONE of these bore
diameters, which gets the nod? For any and all applications, target, varmint, smaller big game, doesn’t matter.
I still feel the 6mms are more versatile and not too much of a good thing for varminting, but what are your thoughts?
