Have a Bat MB action arriving soon to start another 6BR or 6.5X47 build. If the rifle doesn't sell for what I have listed, I will keep it and raise some hell come hunting season. We have some coyotes trying to take over our hunting grounds!
I've sold a couple of rifles here lately because I have the 'next bright idea' like many of us on here! If this one sells, I'll probably regret it though....even though it has the low round count, everything has been extremely easy so far for loading. Fresh Lapua brass, Varget and 105 VLD's. Throw in a Wilson Micrometer seater to tune the seating depth and on the money! If I have time, I may get out this weekend and try to see if there is such thing as tweaking the initial group. May have to stretch on out to 400-500 yds and see what consistency I can get.
Well guys...this post is mainly just a testament to Kevin Cram's work. I was able to fire a few rounds late this afternoon on the 200 yard range again. I used the Harrell's die to bump the shoulder on the brass from the last group about .0015 and I'm using a .266 Redding coated bushing. Out of the chamber and using the Harrell's die, the runout on the neck prior to loading was .0005 or less. Excellent with no-turn Lapua brass! Also tells you something about the chamber and the Harrell boys dies! I used the same load as last time...30.0g of Varget with a 105 VLD jammed .010 and CCI 450 primers. I just don't know what to say! I have always been known to shoot pretty good, but this damn gun is unreal.
See target below. The first round was high and to the left a little...cold bore that still had a thin layer of Kroil. The HOLE below it... is actually 4 shots.(We just won't count that first one...LOL!!) This was using a cheap Caldwell rest that I actually use to sit my guns in to clean. Unreal....I think this may just be the load.
Again...thanks to Kevin Cram at MCR for this build. Like an older fella told me once....everybody needs a 6BR!!
