    Re: 6mm Coyote Rifle

    I shoot a 6BRX, it has a 24" 1:8 twist barrel. It shoots 105 Berger VLD at 2900 fps. using 35.4 gr. of H4350 (work up to this load), you can reach those speeds with less grains of Varget.

    And if someone would please tell me how to post pictures I can post the 300 yard target I shot a week ago during load development.

    It says I'm supposed to press a button that says "manage attachments" but I can't find that button to save my life so please help me because it's frustrating.

    I think you can obtain the 3200fps with a 28in barrell. Some of the bench rest guys claim to anyway. Thanks Dan

    Ok, here's what my 6BRX with 105 Berger VLD does at 300 yards, 6 mph crosswind. 4 shots went into .350" but one opened the group up to 1".

    Thats good shooting. I really want to build a 6mm of some kind next year
    I wish Kirby would get back on and tell me the disadvantages of the 6br and 6br. Dan

    Glover,

    THey are great chamberings. Not overly powerful for the larger 6mm bullets but they do work well and are impressive for their size. Other options that also work great in this class would be the 6mm Dasher and I really like the 6mm-250 which is a bit more then these. All are great.

    Velocity is a bit low so in moderate winds, you will get a good amount of drift but they do pretty well for their size.

    Main disadvantage to the BRs is that brass may not be around forever. Its already classed as sessional. The 6mmx47 Lapua may be an easier way to go, no fireforming needed and a bit more case capacity to get the velocity your looking for with less pressures.

    This might help. This is a comparison between the 6BR, 6BRX, and 6X47 Lapua in the same barrels.

    Beginski's New 6mm-6.5x47 Lapua

    This is what helped me make up my mind when I built the 6BRX. The 6BRX is more efficient than the 6X47 Lapua. But you can't go wrong with any of them.

    Good luck.
