I've played a little bit with the 55 grain 6MM bullets in both 243 Winchester and 6MM Remington rifles. Game pursued has been limited to paper targets and a couple of wayward renegade burrowing armadillos down country. On paper targets at 100 yards and beyond they are very accurate. My pencil-barreled Browning Safari in 243 Winchester eats them for breakfast. After all of the pieces landed from the two armadillos, it was hard to see where the exact point of impact was. (Yes, it's legal to shoot them on private land in Texas with just a hunting license. Not so on public land the last time that I checked.)

For me, 52-55 grain bullets and the .224" bore diameter in cartridges like the 22-250 and the 220 Swift go together like peas in a pod. If I jump up a bore diameter to 6MM, I prefer the 70+ grain bullets for coyotes, etc., at extended ranges. I even shoot 60-70 grain .224" bullets as a preference over 55 grain bullets at longer ranges in my custom 22-6MM rifle built on a Montana Rifle Company CRF Model 70 cloned stainless action. I've never been a disciple of the spit wad/muzzle velocity effect in choosing rifle bullets.

But that's one of my weird preferences.....

The 55gr Nosler hit 4400fps from my 6mm/270 imp with 64.5gr of Re23.
I'm sure they will fly fast than that, since I used the exact same load with an 85 grain Barnes X bullet at 3900fps.

If I get some time, I'll run them up full tilt and shoot a couple of groups.

The barrel is 1:12 twist so I don't think they will fly apart.

I've used them in my 243ack and they hold up fine at 4200fps. I'm not sure what twist the barrel is but it's not very fast. With a brake there is no recoil, and on rodents the show through the scope is spectacular.

I also shot it out of a big case--6AI, and it was great for shots to at least medium ranges of +/-400 yds. on coyotes. Never shot it further really, although been awhile. I now use the 87 gr. Hor. BTHP for everything.

I had trouble with the 6mm 55g in high spin rate scenarios (275K+ RPM) where a normal varmint bullet was fine. Grey puff in the scope 10 ft out the muzzle.

I'll have to look to be certain but I think I have some 58gr Vmax 6mm/.243 bullets but you live in Comminfornia and they aren't lead free so they may not work for you.
