Thread: 6mm copper bullets

  1. #1

    6mm copper bullets

    Looking on the internet for 100gr copper bullets for my.243 for us on FC ground.
    Tried all the bullet manufactures that I can think of & can't find any.

    Any one got any informationg on them or am I looking for somthing that dose not exist.

    Why do you want copper bullets for FC land they have canceled that rule before it came into order

    Not from what I heard from a FC ranger a couple of weeks back.

    Copper is less dense than lead, so you won't find any 100gr bullets. Why don't you ask SNH for some guidance? Regards JCS

    Look for Barnes TSX or Lutz Moeller (guy from Germany ) who make solids that work, not sure on 6mm weights, I use them in 260 and 284 calibre's.

    ​I dont use anything else for deer

    I have been looking but the heviest I have come up with are 90gr Nosler E-Tip.
    The .243 set up I have is a lot lighter that my 30-06 Tikka so prefer to use that when I can.
    Makes live a bit easier when you have a bad back.

    Like jcampbellsmith said, even if you find one, your rifle won't have a chance in stabilizing them.

    If you insist, CEB makes a borerider which is dubbed also for hunting, it requires 1-7" twist: - 243Cal6mm100gr50ctMTHVLDSingleFeedMatchTACHunt

    Hi Macky . . . I would maybe ask the FC Manager to clarify . . . I know it was on the table up her for a while but it certainly isnt in force yet . . . not to say however your not included in a trial area ect.
    As been said, you will struggle with 100 grain bullets in .243

    Might be easier to find a 308 or 270 for that ground. I think Barnes only go up to 85grain in 6mm. Your 243 could probably be rebarreled to 308 if you didn't want to change rifle

    I have 2 FC leases & the FC manager I deal with is not for it but it might still happen.
    The ranger I was with a few weeks ago said that is all that they are using now & have been for the past year or so.

    Lookes like I will have to try some in the 30-06 instead.
    My .243 with handle 100gr even though it is 1 -10 twist so lookes like I will have to stick to them insted.
