A fellow shooter is thinking of rebarreling his 6ppc Hall action with a 8 twist barrel to shoot 105's or 107's out to 500 meters. Has anyone else done this ? If so, successful ?

There are a few other things he could do also.
Either have the bolt face opened up a tad to be able to use both the ppc and the br cases. Then he could use it either way.
He could then chamber it in 6br 6 dasher or the 6ppc.
The trick is to not open the bolt face larger Then he had to.
The second way is to make a br and turn the rims down a tad to fit the ppc bolt. It has been done many many times.
Nothing wrong with a ppc with the heavy bullets either.
The advantage may be more velocity with the BR.
Just my nickels worth and i hope it helps.
