244 and 6mm Remington use the same operating pressure. Remington renamed it when they changed the twist rate and chamber throat from 1:12 to 1:9 in 1963. I would stay within the original bullet weights or 90gr and below for bullets in the 244.

A little history from Gundigest

I have my dad's 742 6mm. Keep it super clean to operate well. There are/were a total of 5, 6mm guns at one time in the family.

Another Remington marketing failure. Ballistically, it was a superior cartridge to the .243.
