View Full Version : Factory sporter class rifles

Just wondering on options for factory rifles chambered in 6mmbr? Over here in the uk there is a factory spoter benchrest class and I am going to compete in it, trying to find a good factory rifle to compete with out of the box aint easy, one of the most popular here would be the 6ppc sakos that were made a few years back but they are hard to find, next thought would be maybe a 6mmbr Cooper varminter, I dont know of any other manufactuers who make rifles in benchrest style cartridges, problem with the cooper is that its a 1-14 twist which is a tad tight. Anyone have any other suggestions for a good factory sporter benchrest rifle/chambering?

I believe Grunig & Elmiger makes a nice 6BR. Maybe they won't allow that in Factory class? Or perhaps you already have a second mortgage?

Cooper also made a 6PPC a while back . . .

Moving to more affordable options, Is this for group or score. If group, one of the .222s or .223s would likely be best. Probably the same for score, unless someone in Europe makes a nice .30-30 or 7.62x39
