Pretty sure I have my mind made up to build a 6mm creed to be a practice and maybe match gun (I’ve shot in a lot of 22LR matches with my vudoo 22, but never any PRS stuff), and also double duty as a coyote/antelope/doe rifle.

Looking at shooting the 108 ELDM factory stuff to keep it simple, or the Prime OTM hopefully to keep me from loading for it, but I will if I have too. Just not preferred.

What twist? I have zero experience with 6mm. 7.5 or 7 with 105-110g type bullets?

Was thinking 20” tube, but I have an ultra 9 I would run on it most of the time I think for max supression, but would 18” be to short from experience?

I’m leaning towards calling Alamo precision to build it in the ranger platform to serve double duty hunting and target...anyone else out there building a good hybrid I should be looking at?

I have a 6mm Creed, built for the same use. There’s no reason to go faster than a 1-8” twist for the bullets you mentioned.
