Thank you for the article. It's funny how you can spend all the time in the world, and still not find a better load than the 308 standard (Lapua brass, Varget, 175 SMK). It's almost the identical load that I run. My next purchase will be the RCBS charge-master to speed up reloading, and minimize ES, and SD. I have to have as much help as I can get with my .308 (don't have those slippery 6mm bullets to play with). Oh by the way my handle over on Sniper's Hide was Long-shot for those who love or hate me.

Hi all. I've checked this site out a few times before and really like the information but had no 6BR. I've decided to build up a semi custom Savage 400 yard egg gun in 6BR and the information found here has been most helpful.
The barrel will be a Pac-Nor probably in an 8" twist measuring 26" and a straight pipe having a 1.120" diameter, Baer BR stock, Sightron 36x scope, Leupold Std. base and Burris Signature rings, eventually a SSS BR 2oz. trigger and SSS competition recoil lug and tactical bolt handle. I'm looking to shoot anywhere between the 88LD up to the 107 SMK.
I'm pretty active on GGVG and Savage Shooters and also like Saubier, Predator Masters, BRcentral, Greybeard, LRH, Texas Predator Posse and Wildcat Shooting boards.

Hey Folks My names' Andy seitz and I am a fairly new benchrest shooter that likes many different kinds of rounds. My favorite is the little .243 WSSM coyote that I am working with right now and would like to find out what other people are finding out about this new cartridge. Hello to all and I look forward to "shooting" the bull with you guys!

Hello, all. First time here. I'm a regular on the shooting forum sponsored by Guns & Ammo Mag. I discovered this site while researching Krieger barrels for my 6mm Rem VLS. I'm not a competitive shooter, and I don't own a 6mmBR, however, I do have a good time with prairie dogs with my 6mm Rem and .223 Rem.
After checking out the reloading forums, the knowledge base here seems incredible, and I kind of doubt I'll have much to offer...but, I've sure got a lot of questions!

Ok I'll bite...
I've been lurking here a while and I have had a few posts lately. I am new to the 6BR's, but not new to benchrest and other "close to 6mmBR" wildcats. I've been shooting competitive Benchrest since 1995, and before that I did a lot of varmint shotting and wildcatting. Below is a recent picture at the "Iowa State IBS Score championships". I did very well there, 1st in the Vh 100, 1st in the VH 200, 1st in the VH grand, 6th in the VFS 100, 1st in the VFS 200 and 1st in the VFS grand, and 2nd Overall.
This picture was taken during a practice day.
