    I just got through measuring a heap of 6mm bullets today for the 6br and 6br improved fast twist and thought it might be worth posting the results. These are ogive variation lengths between bullets in the same box:

    Hornady 105 amax .008"
    HOrnady 75 vmax .000"
    Berger 105 vld .002"
    Berger 95 vld .004"
    NOsler 55 bt .002"
    Nosler 70 bt .001"
    Sierra 70 blitzking .000 with one bullet at .006" out
    Sierra 107 MK .000"

    I don't really have anything to add other than I'm happy about the consistancy of the Nos Bal Tips since that is what I'm using but I'm using them in a Ruger ultralight with a short pencil bbl for my yote calling gun.

    Thanks for taking the time to post all that.
