JB... you might want to re-calculate your figgers there. The 6.5-08 generally goes 2500-3000. Unless you're saying to expect accurate barrel life from a 6mm BR over 5-6k rds...

Just a quick question, I know the BR crowd loves the 6BR, and obviously I'm very interested in it but...what does it offer over the 243? Seems to be the 243 offers more powder, but why isn't it used for BR?

What kind of pills am I lookin' to push out of a 6BR? Powder type? And what barrel contour/length/twist?

Wow that sounds way to easy, what's the catch?!?

All you have to do is fire standard brass then neck size from there? Obviously I've never fireformed brass.

The .243 shoots very well, just a tad overbore... lots of powder going down the same size hole... about 15-20gr worth for about 300-400fps more. Barrel life tends to go down markedly when ya start doing that sort of thing

As for the other info on the 6mm BR... I'd suggest go to the main home page for http://www.6mmBR.com and look thru the stuff on Reloading, among others. Also, sifting thru some of the 'Gun of the Weeks' can glean some pretty good info as well, as can browsing the archives here on the forums.

HTH,

Recently it has been mentioned to me the 6BR has extraction issues in a 700 possibly. What do you guys think of this.

cant be extraction issues...has the same boltface as the 308 and half of every cartridge out there. but a PPC might...
