.224 Texas Trophy Hunter (TTH) / .22-6mm Remington

Load Image
Warning! Notes: Following extensive experiments with the 220 Swift, 22/250 and 240 Weatherby cases, the designer settled on the 6mm Remington case as the best balance of case taper, shoulder angle, length and capacity. Necking the 6mm Remington case down to 224 (with the factory's 26-degree shoulder angle), he created a cartridge that would deliver heavier well-constructed, 70 to 80-grain 224 bullets accurately at relatively high velocities. The 6mm case provides optimum capacity for the 224 bore, brass is readily available, and standard actions and magazines require no modification other than a new barrel. Proper rifling twist for the 224 Texas Trophy Hunter is 1:8 or 1:9. Bullet construction is the key to success; it takes a stout, thick jacket, solid or bonded core bullet to hold up to the velocity potential. Stoutly constructed bullets can be driven in excess of 3,500 fps. Dies are available from Redding; Nosler recently endorsed its 22-caliber 60-grain Partition bullet for whitetail deer hunting.
