Hello, 

 

I live in the northeast US.  I've been a varmint shooter, reloader for few years.  Getting back into shooting 

after a long busy spell.  I'm partial to 22-250, 22BR, 6BR, 22WMR, 6-47 & of course .223rem.  Looking forward to re-connecting

with a group of shooters.

 

Thank you-

I note that most newcomers reload, which is a good thing! It is interesting to see that the 22-250 is still very popular, as is the .223. The former because it is one of the finest varmint carriages ever designed, and the latter because of readily-available ammo. But I'm a bit taken back, that no one here (that I know of) loads the 6 mm PPC. Or the .22 PPC for that matter. While not as fast or powerful as the aforementioned, the 6 mm and .22 PPCs are still the kings of accuracy. Fact is, the best bench rest group ever (.007 CtC) was shot with a 6 mm PPC.

   I reload for the 6mm Remington and 6.5x55 Swede.   Used to use a 22-250, but like the 6mm remington much better for reaching out.

Thanks Gents.  

 

Alan, I have Sako 6ppc & load for it.  VV133 & 58g vmax, if memory serves. 

yes, it is an accurate little cartridge.  I also like the 220 swift, old/school guy that i am. 

 

trying to add photo...

Welcome to the group. While it has been mentioned I'll chime in. Have two single shots in 219 Zipper Improved that are very fast and very accurate. Been awhile sense they been out. Think I'll bring one along when we head up north to chase ground squirrels. Thanks for those talking about less known stuff.
