    I keep thinking this set up might be a poor mans comp match. The case capacities are real close.
    What says the think tank? Could it strongly resemble the 6Comp Match in the areas of velocity and barrel life?

    Think you need a long barrel for a powder that slow in 6mm Remington.

    I have had extensive experience with the 6mm Rem BUT only as far as hunting is concerned. It is a fabulously accurate cartridge, especially in Ackley form! I used to drive 95gr Combined Technology Ballistic Silver Tips at a bit over 3400 f.p.s. out of a 6mmRem Ackley using a 26" barrel! I would think, using say RL-26 and a 115 DTAC in a 30" barrel, you should be able to TOP 3300 easily with the Ackley version. Now whether the 115 DTACS could withstand that level if velocity out of an 8 twist over 25 shots would be anyone's guess. But I believe the speed and accuracy would be there!

    The performance will be there, but you'll need a long action in order to load heavy .243caliber bullets where they like to sit. If you've got a short action, you'll be havin' to choke them bullets so far down the neck that'd be a waste of space/time for no net performance gain...

    I ran a 6 Rem for a few years as a a long range prone gun, it shot well with VV n165 could run the 115's and 105's plenty fast, but they seemed to shoot best well below maximum speed, barrel life was ok (1200-1500 rounds) I later switched to a BRX

    Seeing as how he was comparing against the 6 Comp Match, a cartridge purposely designed for the 'precision rifle' game, single loading a 6mm REM would most assuredly present a problem.

    Round peg, square hole...

    I have tried H1000 with 100gr. Sierra's. I was unimpressed and quit playing with it.
