What is it like? How does it compare to 22BR? Can anyone please comment on this caliber; I did not find any treads here. Have my sights on one but can't decide. Thank you!

yes, very fast, 75 Amax @ 3400 easily,very flat shooting.

Very accurate, altho a bit on the barrel burner side of it all.
I love the 22BR but it don't come close to the speed of the 22/6mm..
I still would rather own a 22BR, as it's close enough, and will last forever.

I purchased a 22/250 online which upon inspection proved to be a 22/6mm. I've test fired it but hope to get to the range for accuracy testing on Monday. It's a 1:10 and I'm starting with the 70g Berger bullet.

Where do you get brass from? Do you form it from 6mm rem or 7x57 mauser? Can you please suggest powder/loads for this caliber? The one that I decided to get has 1 in 9" twist and the owner says it shoots 80 grainers best. Thank you

had a 22/6mm ackley once. shot 60Hp sierra's over 4100 fps. super accurate, very flat, and did i say the barrel's don't last all that long?

if you make brass from 7mm mauser you might have to turn the necks to get them to fit the chamber

I have a 22-6mm Imp, 80gr SMK @ 3640 31" Pacnor Brl. I use Win 6mm brass, neck down and fire form. I use 22-250 Imp dies to neck size, seat, and shoulder bump. I also have a 240 Gibbs and will use the gibbs FL sizer to do the base, so far getting 5 or 6 firings and have not had to anything but neck size.
With a NON improved 22-6mm you could probably get away with using a 6mm S bushing neck sizer, and 6mm FL sizer along with a 22-250 seater. Or wait the time and order a 22-6mm die set from Redding, Hornady or others.
Good Luck with the project.
