6mmBR loads

I am interested in hearing what recipes you reload in the small weight bullets (55gr-70gr) as I am getting a
1-14" twist barrel 6mmBR built. Thanks in advance.

Re: 6mmBR loads

Using Fed205gm primers and Lapua brass, I found Benchmark made a good combo with Sierra 70 grain Blitzkings. My particular barrel was a 6ppc barrel with about 1300 rounds down it when I converted it to a short barreled 6br for varmints. The barrel is still smooth but it didn't like 70 grain ballistic tips or 75 grain Vmax. Only the blitzkings worked really well.

With Benchmark, I use the low end node of 32.5 grains because it shot a little better at 200 yards than the high node of 34.5 grains. Although the 32.5 grain load is kinda slow, it shoots great and still whaps the chucks well.

Also, my barrel is only 21" long so trying for super speed with it was kinda pointless.

6mmbr.com recommends using CCI br primers in the 6br and I couldn't see where it made any difference, except that my groups got bigger with them. Fed 205gm primers worked the best by far in every load I tried.

Re: 6mmBR loads

1000yd,
I have a 6BR 14 twist Cooper varmint and its favourite load is 30.5grns of Vit 135 pushing a 68grn Berger, sparked off by a Fed 205M primer out of Lapua brass.
This load passes over the chrono for an average of 3120FPS and is extremely accurate.

Ian.

Re: 6mmBR loads

Yes. they go FAST!

A 26" barrel will yeild 3900 fps with AA2230. 7mmrhb has had one for many years and that's what he shoots. I never got them up that fast out of my gun but it only has a 21" barrel.

Re: 6mmBR loads

Hi i use the 55gr BlitzKings with 32gr Benchmark in a Rem 700 that was rechambered 243 VLS heavy barrel and cut to 22". With an ejector fitted over 32gr damages the head of the cases. I also use 33gr H4895 or 34gr Varget they all shoot under 3/8" at 100 yards and are all around 3400fps.

Cheers Bill
