Re: want to have built a 6 br or maybe a 222

The 6ppc is by far the most accurate and less wind prone. I have three 222,one 222AI,five 6ppc, one 6br and two shorten 6brs. I'm not much into LVD bullets and slow twist rifles I'll just move up in cal and bullet weight. As to dies Neil Jones makes some pretty nice ones also have heard good things about JLC. Hart, Shilen and Kreiger plus afew other make some good 6mm barrels. My latest 6ppc is on a rem action 1/14 twist Hart barrel tight neck been shooting 65gr bullets with full case of 8208 and it's a great PD rifle. I only use 1/14 or 1/15 twist barrels in my 6br's or 6ppc and use from 65/68gr bullets. I've got a 223AI that has a 1/14 twist hart barrel and I'm really impressed with that case in fact liked it so much had another one build. My 222,6ppc and 223AI are getting to be my favorite PD rigs. I'd look at the 22Dasher/6Dasher with a 1/14 twist barrel before I do another 6br. Just my .02
