6mmBR cartridge..???

Anyone using this tiny cartridge for any LONG distance ground hogging or ?? ( besides paper punching)..?

Im having one built up to do mainly paper but also to cause death to the occasional "pasture grizzly". Anyone using the same cartridge for any really good reason??

Re: 6mmBR cartridge..???

I have one and love it. It is an awesome round for targets with accuracy that is hard to equal. We also use it for gophers and prairie dogs as well as coyotes and antelope. Have taken antelope to 500 and a yote at 651. My wife loves it too. But I think that might have something to do with the 4 1/2" group she put on steel with it at 1000 yards.

I have an 8 twist Kreiger and shoot 105 Bergers and 107 smk's.

Have your builder chamber for a BRX. You'll get a couple hundred more fps out of it. I didn't and wish I did.

PS: Here is a 200 yd. target shot from my hunting rifle with a Brux 1 in 8" twist shooting 105 Berger VLDs. Also my best 1,000 yd. target. Scores & group sizes for 5 shot groups are in lower right of target.

Seee! They dont all have to be 338/378 to go 1000 yds....

Since my only practical LONG distance shooting will be the occasional 600 yds ( rarely) and usually no more than 400...I think it might do me fine for up to that 400 mark.

I thought about that but with the straight BR I can even buy loaded ammo in some emergency. MAybe later on might do some opening up and go for a modified cartridge.

Brux barrel on mine also and I'll be trying 105 Hornady's and ??( size??) Lapua bullets.

Here's the stock Im having installed... and I'll be using a 6.5-20 Zeiss conquest on it

Yeah, as long as you are not hunting elk or large deer in the wind. At the distances you are talking you will be very pleased. Just dont use a cheep azz rail base.
