Make it three for 6mm Remington! I can only wish I had the bucks to do it.

You putting it on a long action or short action?

I'd go 243AI on a short action and 6-06 on a long action, if it were mine.

You might consider a 6mm PPC or a 6mm Bench rest, it would sure be worth a look anyway.

I would build a 8 twist anything so you can shoot a wider variety of bullets, AI's are awesome but hard on barrels. Standard 243 is always a great choice but the 6BR is something to consider it really does everything great.

-1 on the 6mm Rem, +1 for the inherently accurate 243 AI.

Well guys. Thanks for the info. I've got a 243ai and a 6 rem. Both in 8 twists.

I have the 12 twist barrel and that's what im building the gun around. I think I'm gonna try the 6x47L. Shooting 60-80 grain bullets.

But any suggestions are great!!!
