New ar15 in 6 woa

Here is my new stick. Dan Carey 6mm woa. ( 6.8 spc case necked down to 6mm) rifle gear lower with a SSA trigger. Only had it a couple weeks. Can't find 6.8 brass to save my life. I got lucky when ssa put some up last week i hope they ship soon.

Loaded up some 80 gr burgers and some 65gr vmax's with the brass I have. The 65's are doing 3450 on my chrono! Not to bad for a ar15 platform.

Sweet! Ole Dan built me the exact same build in the same caliber. Mine seems to like the 75 gr V-max's so far. I put a magpul stock on mine and and using a 3lb timney trigger. Nice stick Bud and congrats

Hi Tube
What gr pills will you be shooting and what rate of twist?

Re: New ar15 in 6 woa

I'd love to hear anything else about this rig you might have to offer. Sounds like exactly what I'm looking for in my next AR build. A little more about about Dan and the 6woa would be great as well. I think this round may be the "wolf cure" I've been looking for. I'm a huge fan of anything 6mm.

Re: New ar15 in 6 woa

When you buy the dies from white oak they send along some basic load data. ( only white oak sells the dies) you can also find lots of load data on the interweb but please use caution. What I have found so far is that it shoots everything that will fit in the magazine very well.

The builder of my upper is Dan Carey
Carey Custom Rifle Company
You can read about what he can build on his site. So far I have two of his uppers, a 204r and now the 6 woa.

I would be looking at 90-100 grain medicine for whitetails. This looks like an ideal cartridge for standard AR platform.
