    My advice is this:
    Speed kills- EVERYTHING!
    It will kill barrel life and accuracy. There will be some here that will say it is obtainable but it will come with a price.
    I would suggest the 6mm Rem AI or the 6.5 -284 or maybe a 6mm- 284.
    A 1-8 for the 6mm and maybe a 1-10 for the 6.5 if all he will shoot is 100-120 gr.

    Dave,

    Look at the other discussion on the 6.5 stw. Your goals are easily attainable. Let me know if you have any questions.

    I've got a buddy who wants to launch a 6mm or 6.5 mm 100 grain at 3800~4000 fps. I've been looking for wildcats and factory rounds. I have just now been able to get back on this site for some reason windows decided it needed a break from this site I guess. So my question is what are your thoughts? He wants it for varmint shooting and wants it either in 6mm or 6.5 mm so no 30 cals or anything under 6mm please.
    Thanks in advance.
