Re: What 6mm/243 bullets are you using on Rams?

Tried the additional two; Sierra 100gr GameKing, doink Nosler 95gr BT, doink DTAC, last Sunday 6 hits, 6 Rams went down. So far, so good. I tried the Berger 115gr Target bullet. I had to seat them really, really deep. Too deep. Powder crunching big time. It was suggested to try the Berger 115gr Hunt...

No worries. :)

Especially since they did not do as well as the Sierra 107gr MatchKing on Rams. :-s

Re: What 6.5 for HP Silhouette?

6.5 is a weird caliber that seems to shot well in all its configurations. I don't know if there is any advantage over one or the other, other than availability of brass and dies. A few (quite a few LOL) years ago I did an analysis of the best bullets available (best determined by BC) in all caliber...

Re: What 6mm/243 bullets are you using on Rams?

115 grain DTACs at 2700 fps muzzle velocity. Just started using them. 12 rams hit, 12 rams down. What powder? How much? 6BR? I have two more bullets to try then it would be the DTACs. I tried Hornady ELD-X, doink A special made 100gr bonded bullet, doink Cutting Edge solid copper, doink So far the ...

Re: SK Specification Match

I'd be really happy to shoot Lapua ammo. As you said they do a lot to support our shooting sports. I use Lapua brass and often, VihtaVuori powder. That being said, my Anschutz, as do many, if not most, seems to like Eley. I have it on good authority that Anschutz uses reamers that will result in a c...

Re: What 6mm/243 bullets are you using on Rams?

She switched to 6br. I dont know why, you would think she would get pressure to use the lapua round since she is on team lapua. Anyway she won like crazy with 6br last year I have it on good authority that Kathy uses Berger 115's on Rams. Whether she uses the Target or Hunting version, I don't know...

Re: Hornady 243, 103gr ELD-X, first samples report

While i can't speak to the 6mm ones. I started using the 140gr 6.5mm. Dave Brommer shot my rifle at Raton year before last and they bucked those cross winds pretty handilly. If the 6mm are as good as the 6.5mm I'd be all over them. I think the 140gr is an ELD-M, not -X. Can you confirm which Dave w...

Re: Target image with MOA superimposed

Pistol and BovinePerson Lever Action are shot on a different course so yes they would be different.

I shoot only HP and Smallbore Rifle Silhouette so I forget about the short range stuff. :D

I used to shoot pistol but it has been a while.

Re: What 6mm/243 bullets are you using on C, P & T?

I was asking because I am curious but also because I remember reading about someone ringing one of them. Maybe a Turkey, or even a Pig?

Anyone remember that?
