    The 6mm Remington is a wonderful cartridge. It's a terrific varmint round and great for deer sized game. I purchased a Mauser 96 action and built a 6mmAI off of it with a heavy barrel. With a 1-12 twist it's perfect for varmints out to 600-800 yards. I also have a 6mm Remington that I've taken a number of white tails with.

    I personally think the cartridge is underrated.
