With less drop and less wind deflection and an ability to shoot accurately at groups at a greater distance, the 6mm Ammo delivers reliable power to distances over 500 yards. It has its place of origin in the United States of America in the 1950s.
The 6mm Ammo is designed with a single track, making it easy to get set up and quickly. It is known for a combination of high velocity, extended ranges, a flat trajectory, and accuracy. It is suitable, as well, to be used as a dual hunting cartridge for both medium-sized bug games and varmints.
The 6mm ammo has a bullet diameter of 0.244 inches, a casing of 7 × 57mm, and a cartridge length of 2.825 inches. In addition, it has a max case length of 2.233 inches and a MAP of 52,000 CUP.
6mm Ammo cartridges are used for varying shooting purposes as they provide excellent accuracy for games and light recoil. Some of the 6mm ammo variations include the .243 Winchester, the 6mm Remington, and the .240 Weatherby Magnum. There is also the 6mm Creedmoor which came up in the year 2017.
While the .234 Winchester continues to ride the 6mm ammo wave, the 6mm Remington remains a solid performer. This feature is due to today's high technology bullets, new powders, and the availability of fast twist rifle barrels. As a result, the 6mm ammo can shoot energies of over 1,700fps from a muzzle at a range of 500 - 600 yards.
