Anyone hunting varmints with a 6mm BR repeater?

What action did you use?

Not a repeater but a single shot. I have a Model 700 action that has been gone over.

Mine is also a single shot. I have played with getting a 700 magazine to feed with reliability and the results haven't been real consistent. Converting to a detachable setup with a magazine designed for the BR case would be the route I would pursue if the obsession strikes again.

A friend used a well used Remington 742 chambered for 308 to wild cat a Cheetah 2 with very good results.
He how ever is not happy with hunting his cases after the shot so has developed a catcher. Since he/we mostly hunt coyotes where we may get more than two shots it works fine. He has less money in it than if he had bought a AR.

People modify AICS magazines, by using a block at the back as you suggested.

I have a 30-06 Mauser in the classifieds section. If it doesn't sell this one is going to be a 6mm BR, and I'll use the AICS magazine system.

Tikka 595 with 22-250 magazines are good to go.

Also, Sako 75 with 6ppc magazines.

I have a savage 110 in 243, and was thinking along the same lines. Does a savage 22-250 have it's own follower and a block in the back of the mag well?

I was always going to make an adapter for a 7.62x39 mini 30 magazine to 700 , but have just never finished the project. Thing is with the 6BR there is no excuse to miss with the first shot!

When it comes to varmints, I have to agree with DuaneinND. The 6BR has a longer arm than my 6PPC, but with my PPC you can't miss~!!!

6mm target calibers are great. I chose a 6mm PPC-USA from Sako. Unbelievably accurate with a 68-70 grain pill~!

And that is precisely the point and why I love my 6mm PPC. The PPC and the BR are so darned accurate you won't miss many first shots~!

6mm PPC is not as much talked about today a it was some years back. What would you think about a a tight neck 6PPC in a light weight sporter configuration built on an XP100 single shot action with very light Timney trigger and a gain-twist barrel throwing a 62.5 grain Watson into one very tight hole at 100 yards~? Build by an extremely reputable builder, James Hare, in the mid '80s~! It's the most accurate rifle I've ever seen and I've seen quite a few pretty accurate fireqrms.

Oops! The Hare built rifle is a single shot. But who needs more than one shot~????
