FWIW-I had one before I ever became the dealer.
I will be getting quite a few BWS's with this next shipment-It makes the SEB even more smooth.

6Rem AI would work for sure as well.

243 Win, 243 Win AI, 6-284, 6 Rem, 6XC (and some others I haven't mentioned) should all work for your goals.

Let us know what you decide.
I am leaning towards the 6mm Remington AI from what I have read. In England access to reloading supplies are limited. Can you advice what is the parent case of 6mm remington ? I think it is from a 7 x 57 roberts ? correct ?

The SEB coxial dealer www.foxfirearms.co.uk (Brian Fox) is also making aluminium ring base so that F-class shooter like me can use the rest on grass and shooting matt in addition to Concrete bench table

thanks so far for advice

Thank you for your advice.

Can I be very frank when I had a 6BR a few years ago, I was just getting into reloading. I was not even 50% as metiulous as I am now. Neck turning sorting cases , experimenting with seating depths so on and so forth,

It seems like for UK shooting distance it is really quite difficult to beat an EFFICIENT cartridge like BR such accuracy for such little powder.


Last question

Is a 6 dasher is no more or less accurate than a 6BR. It just has slightly more powder capacity and can give up to 100 fps more than a standard BR ?

If so I am going back to a BR with 1 in 8 since my last BR was a second hand job with a 1 in 12

Dasher is just as accurate.

I have shot with a guy in two F class matches that is using a dasher. I believe he shot 593 out of 600 @ 1K. Yesterday, he shot 597 out of 600 @600yds. I would hate to see a 6 BR that was more accurate than the dasher this guy was shooting.
