Help on 6mm International

Does anyone have any information on reloading the 6mm International? What cartridge do you use as a starting point for reloading information? What brass do you prefer to start from (it looks like there's a lot of different brass you can start from and either neck up or down).

Also any powder recommendations, bullets?

Thanks.

I always thought the 6mm International was the same as the 6mm-250? Or at least very close. You might want to look in that direction as well.

Two or three editions ago Sierra's reloading manual had data on the 6mm International. I will dig it up and get the info to you if you wish.

That would be great! Thanks.



On a side note, the 6mm International is pretty much the same as the 6mm-250.

Thanks again.

The 6mm-250 is listed on the hodgdon online reloading data base.

Re: Help on 6mm International

Here's the pics. It's a 6mm International, on a Shilen action, with a 27" SS barrel (1:13" twist). The barrel is in like new condition, internally. Sorry the pics aren't the greatest...
