Default Got my new/used 6mm Remington!

Hay guys, got my new/used Remington Varmit, in the 6mm cal. Did the usual bore clean+copper fouling removal, Flitzed out the metal,Johnson's paste waxed the BEAUTIFUL wood! Man it's a pretty SOB I hope it shoots as well as it looks! The guy I bought it from threw in 10 rounds of Remington factory loads, and about 43 once fired cases. I put together 20 rounds of 58gr. Hornady V-Max. loads, with 44 gr. of Varget, last weekend(BEFORE I got the rifle HA HA) And hope to test fire it tomorrow-GREAT Father's Day gift, don't you think??

Billy I HATE YOU SO MUCH.

You get a new gun and don't post any new gun porn? You need to get with the program.

FTF Rule #1 with all new firearms post must have PICTURES. Other wise JD will kick your avatars butt.

Hay, thanks Tango. When I learn how to post picts. on the board, I will. Wanted to burn some powder through it this last weekend, but it was too hot/humid around here to be outside much. Worked some more brass instead. I hope it shoots as well as my other 700 Varmit, in 22-250! Man it's a shooting SOB!! Now if I could just talk my relative out of his 700 Varmit in .308, I'll have all the bases covered--HA-HA!!

You just send me the rifle and ammo (For the picture of course) and I will take some very very nice pictures of it. ( I won't shoot it to much) then I will send it back to you all ready to go. Then I will post all the pictures I take on here.


or

Those 6 mm are outstanding rifles. Sometimes you have to tinker to find a load it likes. Fine rifle, mighty fine. Lucky dawg.

Please get those photos up.

If my dumb butt can do it then anyone can!

Unfortunately for me, I was blessed with height, good looks, and rock hard abs instead of brains, oh well.

Congrats on your new rifle. 6mm Remington is an excellent caliber. My uncle has one that I worked on for him. He said it wasn't shooting good. I recrowned the muzzle, set the trigger at about 3 lbs., free-floated the barrel, and bedded the action and the thing shoots great. I think it will easily shoot with your 22-250. Hope you enjoy it.
