    Hello all! what are your opinions as to which round fires the best with the most power out of a Remington Model 700 and a remington 6mm?

    curious as to what everyones answers will be.

    thanks!

    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.

    how far are you comfortable shooting an antelope with a 6mm?

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

    thats cool! i have my 6mm sighted dead on at 200 yards.. i hunt all timber so its a stretch for me to ever get a shot at over 200 yards. lol

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

    Sierra bullets for the money are the best in the business in my opinion. I have used Hornady when I couldnt find the Sierra bullets I was looking for.
