    I figured I might as well ask about loads while I wait for all of the parts to show up for the 6br rifle I'm building with/for my son.

    Most of the shooting will be prone/target 500yds. But, some out to 1k or occasionally as close as 100yds.

    The barrel is a Bartlien 6mm, 5R, 1:8" twist. It's currently 28" heavy contour.

    I may shorten the barrel. But, will likely shoot it first.

    Sorry if this has been addressed, but I searched and didn't find anything specific.

    Thanks in advance!

    I use RL15 as well, but with fed 205 primers.
    Go to 6mmbr.com and you will get all the info you could want.
