Rembo,don't know about the 6mm ppc but do think it should be a good round. I shoot an 243 ackley Improved and in the last month or so a 257 Roberts. In the older days did alot of shooting with a 222rem. Hang in there someone might help you out. Good luck.

Rembo the 6mm is quite a cost to go after varmints, I would go for a smaller round and a less cost of a round, if you reload your own it will cost less but 6mm I would go for something in .221 Fireball, .222, .223, or 22/250 for varmints and predator hunting.. Just my advise..
Outlaw, Since you are familiar with Ackley improvements, have you ever thought about a 257 Imp.? Ackley called it his most significant improvement. I've been shooting one about 20 years. I started with a regular 257 Roberts 40 years ago.
I have a buddy that uses a 6 PPC for varmints (out to 250 yards). If you reload, the cost to reload the 6PPC is rather inexpensive since you can get 30 plus reloads out of each case. It does take some work to work up the brass the first time and fire form it but after that it's cheap to shoot. I assume your a reloader. My buddy uses a ballistic tip to kill coyotes and woodchucks. The 6PPC is only the most accurate cartridge there is at 100 and 200 yards (check the bench rest shooters).
Almost no recoil, fun to shoot, low cost to reload, supper accurate. Whats not to like about a 6PPC? Have fun,
