    I have this Ruger sa laying around here and I was wondering it it will feed the 6mm BR from the magazine , I have to my a new mag bof , spring and follower anyway so I figured why not build it as a6mm BR , either that or a 260 , I want somthing that is accurate light recoiling and able to take deer out to 250yds.

    Maybe the 243Ai is the way to go , but I have always wanted a 6mmBR

    If you set up your throat to seat the bullets out a ways it should work fine. Sometimes with a short bullet seating length they can cause some feeding issues but I would suspect it would work fine.

    I was thinking about setting it up to use 80-100gr hunting bullets. I don't know what I want to do with it , its one of 6 actions that I have right now that need to be built on I was just wandering if it would work , it'll be a good while before its even close to getting started , I have a 700 and a mkV wby that will be done first
