I have this niggling feeling that I really NEED a 6mm to fill the void in my current armoury between .222 and .270...
Had a .243 in the past, was fine but just didn't inspire me and went in favour of the .222
Prospect of shooting roe in England otherwise I probably wouldn't bother
So 1700ftlbs needed to fill that requirement
Ideally shooting between 75-105gr (3200fps down to 2700fos required)
I really like the idea of the necked up .223/222rem mag cases but suspect I would fall short of target MV with all but the hottest 6x47rem loads
But I have a 6mm BR case sitting in front of me and that looks really nice too
Not really interested in going up to 6.5mm as I already have a 6.8 and it only really excels in the 120-140gr range
It will likely be coming a rebarrelled/rechambered .243 donor rather than anything truly custom and expensive
I have looked at the 6mm cartridges on offer and keep coming back to the 6mm BR....
