6mm Remington
The 6mm Remington was introduced in 1963 to replace the 244 Remington introduced in 1955.
The 6mm Remington was introduced due to a change in the rifling twist from a 1 in 12 for the
244 Remington to a 1 in 9 twist for the 6mm Remington. This was done so Remington could
load bullets larger then the 90 grain used in the 244, as basically the 1 in 12 twist in the
244 Remington could not stabilize bullets over 90 grains in weight.
Even though the cases are the same size on the 244 Remington and 6mm Remington, they are
considered two different cartridges due to different loadings and different head-stamp.
