This is one of the prototypes that we had at SHOT.
    I caved into all the hype around the 6BR...
    I got the load details from the team guys that are now shooting them. Not much load development to do after the first few groups.
    Shooting the 105 hybrid at 2,845 fps.

    Good cartridge choice for hyping a new product!!!

    Tiny groups are the norm.

    Bad *** looking action.

    105 gr Hybrids, 30.5 gr Varget, 20160425_180700.jpg Lapua brass and CCI 450 primer gets it done!
    .330 MOA at 600yards is normal.

    That's a good looking action!

    I love the 6 BR, it's idiot proof. I'm at 30.3gr of Varget for the 105s in my 19" pistol and I use 30.4gr in my rifle.
