Need Help throwing around some Ideas!!

Ok guys, Here is the deal. I have a shot out 223 Imp. I loved the gun and the round. but as with everyone I want to try something new. What I was thinking was a 6MM BR IMP shooting the 105-115gr bullets I know that I will have to open the bolt face which is not a problem. I will install a sako extractor when I do it. Now the Question is what would you guys do. I will be using a Douglas barrel, I know the guys who work there and I think that their products are very under rated. Also if I change the bolt I will have 550-600 pieces of 223IMP brass in load boxes most are loaded. I am just looking for the other options that I have not thougth of or heard of. Also what length and twist should I go with? Thanks

I have a 6mm-223 Imp on an AR platform and I love it , the 55gr Balistic tips for the 6mm have a higher BC than the ones for the 223 and this case will run them out a bit faster , the barrel life is greatly increased as is the effeciency of the round so you don't need as long of a barrel to get higher speeds.

BUT , you will be just about on the limit for the powder to bulklet weight curve with the 80-90gr pills but the 90gr VLD's launched at 2700 fps is pretty impressive ballisticly.

But the 6mmBR is a great round , I personaly would want a little bit bigger case for the 100+gr bullets like the 6.5x47 or 243 but the 6mmBR has proven itself at past 1000yds with the heavy bullets so that just my oppinion
