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.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
