Here is another load that works very well out of my rifle;
This load is shooting in the .1's in my custom 6BR.

Using a 26" Pac-Nor 3 grove 9 twist barrel, on a Savage action, with a rifle basic Sav-2 trigger, pillar bedded Richards Micro fit stock with a 3" wide forend.
I mostly shoot 80g Berger's, fire formed in Lapua brass, that's 90% bushing neck sizes with Forster equipment, and using BR-4 primers with 30.5g of varget, and with the bullets seated at .010 into the lands. All bullet tip runout is checked and keep to a maximum of .004. It shoots vary well at 100 and 200.
At 100 it will shoot in the mid .1s to mid .3s depending on me most of all, and considering Im using a factory mass produced bullet. I have been shooting this rifle for two years now, and and am in the process of building a new 22BR rifle, so its start all over again. Don'T you just love it.

6br, how far off the lands is the 105a-max.? I've been shooting sierras' 107 at .015 off I never tested at 100 yrds but at 300 yrds my groups run about 1-1/4" or less. Been thinking about trying the hornadys to save a few bucks since my wife is shooting in matches too.

If 6mm includes .243 Winnie Pooh, I have my druthers firmly in place. However, for 6mm BR applications, I'm here to learn. Some 6mm applications are my pets, I'm quite sure performancewise. I use Hodgdon H4350 and Alliant Reloder 22 exclusively. Am I missing out on superior powder applications? Love my results, accuracywise to date, but I'm here to learn . . . cliffy

30.2g of Benchmark; 7 1/2; Lapua brass; 70g Nosler Ballistic tip or 70g Sierra Blitz king jammed hard in the lands shoots remarkable at 200 yards, groups in the high 1's to high 2's.
Action is trued 722 with a 28" lilja in a 1-12 twist, McMillen BR stock.
Work up to this load in your rifle.

I only know what I experience, so a 1-in-14" twist seems too sluggish regarding ANY 6mm accuracy load. At 1-in-9 1/8" twist, my 700 Remington stabilizes all 90 grain to 105 grain bullets into my best groups to date. I believe half of what I see, and nearly nothing that I read. A 90 grain Swift Scirocco II bullet appears to have no peers down-range. My findings, to date, are from range experience, and not from published reading. I still like 100 grain Speer Grand Slammers! cliffy
