If I had a 6 mm, I would shoot these:

Hornady 6mm Rem 100 gr InterLock® BTSP

My favorite Hornady is the 150 grain SST in my 308.

Can't go wrong with Hornady rifle ammo, IMHO.

depends on what your doing.

i dont buy much at all factory ammo. if i have factory loads its because ive spent reward points from my lgs.

hunting i like nosler and hornady bullets target shooting sierras are superb general plinking berry's plated or cast bullets.

I've taken several dozen antelope with a 6MM using Speer 85 gr BTSP bullets. All one shot kills.

300 yards. That is as far as I will shoot any animal regardless of caliber.

I hunt on the wide open spaces of Wyoming and 90 percent of my shots are under 100 yards.
