it's a good round, and cases are real easy to form. But it also has one draw back. The neck's a little too short, thuse being a little hard on barrels. I'm going to build another one, but this time ream it off a 6mm Ackley reamer run in short. It's pretty much the samething but much longer (all Ackley rounds use the same taper). I may take it a step further and set it up to use the same .243 Win case I now use trimmed back to about 2.015". I know where a reamer is, and I can buy a 6XC seater plug from Redding or Forster to build the seater. The sizer won't be that hard to do as well, and I'll probably opt for a Wilson for range work.
