I remember many moons ago I wanted to get a Remington 700 in 6mm but never did. What happened to that caliber, you seldom see any rifles for it anymore? Maybe I need to get out more.

When my Dad passed away I inherited his model 600 in 6mm and it languished away in the gun cabinet until I moved to a state that allows rifle deer hunting. He bought it for antelope hunting in New Mexico after he got back from Vietnam, but never killed one. Since I have been in rifle country it has taken around 12 deer between me and the two kids I take hunting. This year I switched to Hornady GMX's for it and those things are sweet in this rifle. I know that David uses his for elk but I would never have dreamt of trying that...until now with the GMX's. It is a great caliber for kids or recoil sensitive people that can handle everything from varmints to deer sized game and with the right bullet I don't think elk is out of the question. Besides that, the model 600 is pleasant to carry and it never fails to get someones attention.....they just look cool.
