    Here is my new stick. Dan Carey 6mm woa. ( 6.8 spc case necked down to 6mm) rifle gear lower with a SSA trigger. Only had it a couple weeks. Can't find 6.8 brass to save my life. I got lucky when ssa put some up last week i hope they ship soon.

    Loaded up some 80 gr burgers and some 65gr vmax's with the brass I have. The 65's are doing 3450 on my chrono! Not to bad for a ar15 platform.

    Sweet! Ole Dan built me the exact same build in the same caliber. Mine seems to like the 75 gr V-max's so far. I put a magpul stock on mine and and using a 3lb timney trigger. Nice stick Bud and congrats

    HI this is my first post. What a nice rifle! Can you tell me where you can find load data? Thanks

    Hi Tube
    What gr pills will you be shooting and what rate of twist?

    I'd love to hear anything else about this rig you might have to offer. Sounds like exactly what I'm looking for in my next AR build. A little more about about Dan and the 6woa would be great as well. I think this round may be the "wolf cure" I've been looking for. I'm a huge fan of anything 6mm.

    When you buy the dies from white oak they send along some basic load data. ( only white oak sells the dies) you can also find lots of load data on the interweb but please use caution. What I have found so far is that it shoots everything that will fit in the magazine very well.

    The builder of my upper is Dan Carey
    Carey Custom Rifle Company
    You can read about what he can build on his site. So far I have two of his uppers, a 204r and now the 6 woa.

    I would be looking at 90-100 grain medicine for whitetails. This looks like an ideal cartridge for standard AR platform.

    Weeeeel, if that be the case then I would definitely go this route. It'll walk all over the 6WOA. This is not to say that the 6 woa isn't awesome because it truly is in every aspect.

    Wow! I like that performance. It is on par with one of my favorite bolt guns in 250 Savage. Which is what I was looking for. I have taken many Whitetails with the 250 Savage, never recovered a bullet, good blood trail, etc. My longest shot on a whitetail wasn't really far, about 160 yards. But I never had to do much tracking either. Thanks for the info.
