400 is no problem for that cartridge. I've got two rifles that have killed rockchucks at 800+ yards. 105 Amax and 87 Vmax will both make it to 1000 in my experience. I've got a slow twist, short barreled rifle also that has taken chucks at 400+ with 60 grain Sierras.

I did just get a 6BRX reamer though, going to build another rifle I suppose to try it out.

Re: 6mmBR cartridge..???

[QUOTE=Sully2;591579]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.

Where can you find 6mm BR. factory ammo???? If you did find any you could still shoot it in a BRX.

PS: To make BRX brass you need to shoot loaded 6mm Norma BR. in a BRX chamber. They will still shoot very accurate.

I've shot rock chucks at 600+yds with mine too. It's a standard 6BR with a 26" 8 twist #7 Lilja. I shoot 105 Bergers.

Ive got the 105 Hornadys and some 105 Lapua HPBT to start with...but have MUCHO other bullets for my heavy barreled 243....

This one will be a single shot but all I have to do it pul it from the stock; stick in the box magazine and spring/follower and she be an "ADL" repeater. Probably stay with the single shot 99% of the time though
