Re: 6br

I think you'll be very impressed with this particular round. I have a 6mm Dasher...which is an "Improved" version of the BR. Shooting a medium load as a fire forming load....I'm shooting @ 1/2 inch...5 shot groups at 100 yards using 105 gr. bullets...I have not had a chance to load up to the Dasher levels...but I'm more than impressed.

BTW, my chamber is designed with a .104" freebore and a 1:8" twist barrel with a length of 28 inches.

Good Luck...I'm sure you'll be very pleased.

Re: 6br

Fantastic mid-range cartridge.
Great cal, great brass, great powder choices, great dies, reamers, etc.

It's almost as easy as 223
