Consequently a fair amount of time at the Rifa refresher course is set aside to riflemanship. Most of the hunters have grown up with firearms, but a great many of the guides have simply grown up in the bush and the only hunting they may have done before commencing with their apprenticeships has been with spear or bow.


FWIW Factory rifle have twist to match factory ammo. According to the manufacturers, handloading voids the warrantee and absolves them of fault. Imagine the lawyer question: So, you installed a barrel with a twist designed for heavier bullets which you KNOW raises pressures, all other variables equal? You installed a barrel made for ammo you don't make and is not accepted as 'standard' in the business? It would be indefensible unless put in a 40X with disclaimers.

There have been some really odd 40X built. Originally Posted by dmsbandit. Last edited by Rangr44; at Originally Posted by Rangr Last edited by dmsbandit; at Remove Advertisements. Early rifles marked. The 6mm Remington was introduced in in the M with a twist rate. All according to John F.

Mine gets used for hides and vermin with 80 or lighter bullets. It really is a good cartridge. Lots of handloads "sing" in mine. Have not tried a factory cartridge in decades, so I won't speak to that. JBelk likes this. Originally Posted by JBelk. FWIW the 6mmm Remington originally had a 'magnum' on the end.

Ammo was packaged in '6mm Remington Magnum' labeling but the cases were never marked with the 'magnum'. I have a box of 6mm Rem Mag ammo. It was the Texans that made the. When it became clear they needed a hundred grain bullet, they tightened the twist.

Not to say other manufacturers don't goof up occasionally but Remington seems to have a knack for porking the pooch. Can think of an instance where the name of a chambering was changed three times.

Talk about public confusion. Getting wrong twist rates almost is a habit with them. Jumping on a wildcat decades after its introduction and hanging the Rem name on it.

Their 'polling' showed shooters liked the wide Remington shoe better than the narrow and sharp M It's just one good example of engineering idiocy associated with gun design. Remington seems to have gone with the "more shelf space the better" business model much like Coke did with 'New Coke'.

By bringing out new models three times a year, even if just renamed, they force their dealers to devote more rack space to Remington guns. It worked great for about 50 years. Since any defects were simply denied, there was no slowing down the train of new models using old parts. I agree very mucho. Point was, the six was just running out of stuff. Still might get something to work though? Round nose or flat nose or something short might work in someones rifle?

Trying to add help. I realize that the major manufactures put out hundreds of barrels a day, but you would think that they would recognize that buyers of 6 MM or 6.

I have no idea what age the barrel is, it has the warnings.

I got it to put on a gun I had with a bad barrel. Will have to see how it shoots when its done. Its a standard sporter weight, 22". Its intended purpose is longer distance plinking and be friendly to my gimpy shoulder and back. Looking forward to being able to shoot it some. I'm not sure anyone makes bullets with similar BC in that a 6mm gr would be, though thats just a guess without looking. It would be heavier if the same BC.
