    I have heard a little about the 6 Dasher.
    What case is that based on?????

    A local shooter told me a few guys are shooting a 7 Dasher.
    I have nor heard of that.
    Any info out there????????

    I am still narrowing my choices for my first F Class Open gun.
    Currently the 6BR and .284 Winchester are neck-in-neck.
    These other 2 are in consideration.

    Thanks
    Good Shootin!!

    Pretty sure the Dasher is essentially an improved 6mm BR. My dad is building one for his new bench gun

    The Dasher and BRX are both improved 6 BR case that push a 105-108 to around 3000 fps

    At 600 the Dasher rules but at 1k the 7mms rule especially in the wind. 7 SAUM 284 etc. The 7s higher BC is the key

    What is the wind in your area? Use that as your guide

    VERY windy on a regular basis.

    That is why the 284 Winchester is the caliber I am leaning towards.

    If I can find out what caliber of bolt face the 28shares with other calibers,
    I can start shopping for a used gun for the action.

    THank you
    Good Shootin!!
