what is a good range of bullets for the 1-9 and 1-10
Really the biggest you can shoot at mag length is the 100 grain bullet. It will shoot in the 10 if pushed and in the 9 without issue. The optimum weight in the 6X45 in MAG length is 87 grains.
Given the choice the best pick is to always go a twist faster if you can. My 6X45 from BHW is 1:9. My other three are 1:10. They all shoot little bullets but the 1:9 will let me shoot longer than mag length if by chance you run into a long boat tail that would suck up case capacity. Some of the new primo bullets come to mind in this case too.
I have literally shot thousands of the 87 weight at mag length and done well over the years in matches. That was out of a 10's but then in the Old Days 9's weren't out there.
Range in the real world is 55-90 for everything from PD's to deer. Same same until you get in the upper tier weight wise. There are some good game bullets 90 or below that I would not hesitate to use. The 6X45 performs so out of its league it is amazing. Then again stepping up to the 6X68 will open up a whole new dimension in the 6 MM world if you choose to take the plunge.

The best firearm for self defense? Any loaded one will do.
