  O0 You really know your stuff pertaining to what you suggest, D. To be honest, most of what you said is far over my head.


I parked my heavy rifles in the corner and now hunt with my lighter carry rifles. Maybe you are at the same point in life, too.

Firearms / More what if's 6mmrem to 6mm-06
« Last post by D45/70 on January 13, 2019, 05:53:00 PM »
Still messing with the boat but had some time to look at the computer...
In the back of my mind is the thoughts of re powering my beloved 6mm rem.

It still works outstanding but "What if" I shoot out the barrel and need to get a new one, I am in love with a 6mm .

SO!

What If I go with ( I know I have brought this up a million times) a 6mm/06 AI.

 I think a 26" barrel is a must but one in a sportier  taper and only 3 pounds not the 6 pounder I have now.

I have been looking some a 4 groove or 5r in 8 or 9 twist stainless steel maybe.

I looks like about $350 .

The faster twist would not work for my 55gr Nosler but the 80gr Barnes would be perfect.  The faster twist would in able me to go up to like a 107 ELD . I have seen some info claiming over 4000 fps with 100 gr plus, wow. I also found 6mm/06 head stamped brass for about the same price ,when I can find it, as my 6mm rem brass.

What if?

Thoughts?

AND yes I do know the barrel life is shortened a lot.

 O0 It looks like you are doing pretty good for deer except for that elusive doe, BC. She is living on borrowed time.

I get out on weekends to bust squirrels.

My shop is in layaway for the winter because of no heat in the shop. I tried using Kerosun heaters in there but they almost snuffed me.  :buck2 When Spring gets here I am running 220V to the shop.

Been slacking and haven't been on in a while.  :'(   Been busy hunting and going through deer camera pictures.  We had some decent deer down at the farm early, but they disappeared for the main part of the season.  The pre-rut and rut saw quite a few come back as well as a host of new ones.  My nephew got an 8pt in Sept. with his bow, I got a 10pt in mid Oct. with the crossbow, and the boy got an 8pt in Nov. with a rifle.  All were decent deer but nothing really special.  Been trying to get a doe for my cousin for summer sausage for a while now, but all we keep seeing are bucks!   :tickedoff   The good thing is that it looks like we'll have some decent ones next year.  The bad thing is that the season is about over.   :'(   Only a couple more weeks left.  Squirrel season goes to Feb. 28th though.   O0

That would have been a hard decision for some hunters, shoot or not shoot that young cat. On my bear hunts I hunted only full size bears but I knew a local fella that treed a lot of bears and shot everything, including cubs. He had a lot of small hides nailed to his barn.

Thanks for the kind words and thoughts, bo. Things are back to normal here and still working full time and shooting squirrels.

Did they get those scumbags that did the driveby?

Everybody is different. I killed my first deer at 12. My first wild hog at 14 and my first bear at 15. I killed my first human at 23. But young men a lot younger than me have gone to war and had to kill the most dangerous game in the world. The kind that shoots back.

I see men and women from their twenties up to their sixties that I wouldn't trust with a squirt gun, let alone a real gun. So it's up to the parent/guardian, and what the legal age in their respective states are.
