Here's my latest build, acquired a SS Winchester 70 CRF SA a while back through some trading and settled on the 6mm CM build, looks to be a great little cartridge and with more and more factory ammunition offerings and some excellent brass available (ALPHA) I thought why not,

Ordered up the parts and dropped it off to Gary Bench and before long out pops another gem,
24' SS Benchmark 1-8 twist 5R barrel
Wildcat Stock out of Alberta,Canada
Factory trigger set at 2.5lbs

Now to find some Talleys and a scope and get this gem to the range !

We have 3 of them. 2 bolts and a gas gun.
105vlds @3300, rl23
110smks @3227, h4350 and
107smks @2990 rl23 out of the ar

The 110’s were far and away the most finicky to make shoot. The 105 load shoots great out all of them...”universal load”

That's a fine look rifle, looks like it has got some really low recoil. say how much did you spend on building this.

My son shoots one at the VBR shoot held at Ridgeway PA's 850-1000 match....to be honest it's a lot more accurate of a cartridge than I ever thought....coming from a Dasher-PPC fan....I'm impressed with the 6 CR...He shoots the Berger 105 Hybrid

Specs on the rifle and load for the 105 @ 3300 and 110 @ 3227? Those are blistering speeds. A great hunting round.

The original 105 rifle is a 26” 7.5t pacnor on a 700. Adg brass, 210m and rl23. Primers are round at 45.8gr. Have to drop tube it. Shot an es of 5 with groups that a dime covers. It shoot well in all of them.

The 110 rifle is a 25” 7.5t pacnor on a bat machine. That is adg brass and 42.3gr h4350. Probably walked over a great rl23 load or 12 and didn’t know. Had stock issues, but this shoots light out so it doesn’t matter.

Built the original for coyotes and ended up chop sawing it down for my daughter. She took to it well so we built her her own on the 110’s. 1000#’s of energy out to 8-850yrds with next to no recoil is pretty cool.

My build that is almost done is on a LP Fuzion TI w. 24" 1:7.5 Proof barrel. I was hoping for 3100 w. 105 Hybrids or 110 SMKs. Looks like those speeds should be very easily doable.
Lapua SR brass
CCI BR-2 or Fed GM210M
H4350 or RL23 (have 10+ #s of each)
700 @ 105 Hybrid & 500 @ 110 SMKs

I have one picture of it with the first three attempts at a seating depth for a load with the 107’s. 40 some rounds down it. I’m sure it will settle into something pretty good. I have tried to push it harder but I have hit the ceiling on rl23. Going to move to rl16 and see if I can’t get up to 3050 or so. The 105 load is 3220 out of it and shoots sub .5 but is mean to the brass out or the ar.

It’s on a sun devil upper and lower, jp high pressure bolt, and a 24” McGowan 7.5t.
