I have both I'm about to mention.

Either the standard 243 or the 6/284.

Both with 30" barrels and having the 8 twist.

The 105 gr bullets from BOTH rifles are extremely accurate to 1000 yards and a bit further for the 6/284 because of the additional velocity that one can achieve.

The 243 would be a better choice if "many" rounds are to be fired and you want the barrel to last longer.

I have a 6/06 with a 30" bbl and a 8 twist that pushes the 105gr A-max to 3400fps.. This gun is deadly on chucks to about 1300 or so.. I also agree on the .243 that is prolly my favorite 6mm..

For your average shooter, I would suggest a .243, but for someone serious, I would start with 6mm and consider the 6x284 and .240 weatherby too. I like a slower twist with the 6mm and a fast twist for the 6-284 as it can better capatalize on the heavy bullets.
