Re: question on tight neck chambers

I would not recommend a 262 neck on a 6br if you are intending to use Lapua brass. I have a 6brimproved on a 265 neck which means my brass must be turned down to 263 and it is a nightmare making it that thin. Turning .004" of each side of the tough as nails Lapua brass was hell on equipment, nerves, and the clock.

My other 6 br is a 269 neck and it is a breeze to make and shoots just as good.
Find it
Range it
Click it
Pull it
Dump it

If it's not far, it's boring.

Goodgrouper, what kind of neck turner do you use? Normally, with a good sharp cutter, turning Lapua is like cutting butter.
