You reload don't you Lon? Are you wanting to stay with factory rounds or go with a wildcat? It's getting harder to find 6mm ammo. What size critters are you going to shoot? Include deer? If you're going to include deer the 6mm is better.
Don't reload yet, Bear, but I will. Coyotes and wild dogs primarily, I have a
.308 for whitetail and pigs, .223 for up to 300 or so yards, but I want something that will deliver on the smaller animals at 500-600 yards.
The 22-250 or the .220 swift is going to shoot flatter, as does the .204 ruger but I'd stay with at least a .22 centerfire for wind bucking abilities (however small). A great wildcat is the 6mm/284 if you want the ultimate varmint rifle. The 6mm/06 is good too.
To continue this conversation....which, in y'alls opinions, is the better round...the .22-250 or the 6mm Rem? Cuz I may be looking at one or the other.
6mm Remington hands down. The 75gr bullet can be driven over 3500 fps, more than adequate to reach out there for varmints. New bullets and powders only make the 6mm better. I've watched my brother with his 788 for the past 35 years take everything from groundhog to mule deer with it.
