    Anyone,
    I am loading for a 6 mm AI in a custom rifle with a 1-8 swist Hart 29" barrel. Conventional thinking says it should shoot the 105/107's best but it likes the 68/70 better. Can anyone share load info for this caliber with me?
    Thanks

    I had a 6br and 6x284 set up for the LVD bullets and didn't get any real good groups till got out to 300yds. My 6mmremAI has a 1/10 twist and I tried some 68 gr match bullets didn't group and having better luck with 80/100gr bullets and R-22. You might want to go over to 6br.com there is a velocity window on those LVD. Well good luck.
