    Ballistically the same as a 6mm-204, but in a short powder column. I'm sure that 75gr load is mild as that's what I get with my 6x45.
    Great looking setup

    Which 87gr and 75gr are you using.

    Ive seen what 87gr Vmaxs from a short barreled 243 do to goats, very impressive.
    Yes Grant has a 6mmARC reamer, I got a 1x10 twist as didn't want to shoot the heavier bullets. The 75gn vmax are very accurate and most effective with CFE 223.
    To me its only a 400mtr cartridge on animals

    Iím guessing the Ruger ranch rifle will be available in 6mmarc using AR mags. These guns have a nice cold hammer forged barrel.
