    I wonder if someone would QL a 243 Ackley load for me...?

    Been playing with this rifle more of late so I thought it was worth an update on a rainy morning (70mm of rain overnight!)... I’ve found the rifle shoots quite well with about 0.020” of jump. Recently been shooting 90g NBTs for a general purpose hunting load and the 105g BTHP Hornady for long...

    New 6mmBR and a couple of loads

    Also cobbled together a new load to share with you all this time with the 75g Vmax and H4895. In truth the aggregate group size should have been lower because I pulled one shot way low on the left hand group. Still, sub 0.5moa in a strong wind over the tailgate of the truck is more than a...

    New 6mmBR and a couple of loads

    WBB I have some Varget and CCI 450’s. I’ll give them a whirl!

    New 6mmBR and a couple of loads

    The 87g Vmax I find performs a lot more like a traditional light hunting bullet than a varmint bullet. Though velocity would have been below 2500fps at impact, it entered via the right shoulder and exited via the chest and only left a golf ball sized exit hole...

    New 6mmBR and a couple of loads

    Knocked over another Reynard just now, this time right on 245 yards. 30kph consistent wind left to right necessitated a bit of hold off. I’d say I got just a little lucky with the wind call as he was facing away and I did not have a lot of latitude for a body shot...

    New 6mmBR and a couple of loads

    Yep Scotty as you know I shoot the Hdy BTHP in a variety of chamberings and weights. Pretty good on pigs and goats too if you’re sensible! The fox above was nailed with the 87Vmax. It might just be the better choice out to 350y for predators and so on unless it’s real windy.

    New 6mmBR and a couple of loads

    Took its first shot in anger last night too. A young fox off the verandah just over 200y away.

    New 6mmBR and a couple of loads

    G’day Folks, Been tinkering with a new 6mmBR I had built on an old Vanguard action. Mainly a parts-gun with a nice new 1-7”t Hardy stainless barrel. BBL length is 21.5”. Spun up a couple of nice accurate loads with a very minimum of tuning. Thought I’d share. 105g Hdy BTHP 28.9g AR2206H /...

    .358 Winchester

    A friend of mine shot a scrub bull with the 200g X-Bullet from his 358. It broke both shoulders and exited!!!

    6mm BR Norma - anyone willing to run QL numbers for me?

    Many thanks Mike!

    Reduced load for 260 Rem.

    Sounds like you solved the question Buster. Thanks for sharing the results!

    QL - 20" 223 Rem

    No worries. It was 25 grains of H4895 on the dot. The same rifle used 23.8g of H4895 to drive a 75g Amax 2825fps for reference. I found the 4895 as accurate as Varget in my 223 and 223AI. Velocities were around the same too though charge weights differed a little. Good luck and let us know...

    6mm BR Norma - anyone willing to run QL numbers for me?

    In any case I’ll post some real world results when I have the rifle in hand for those interested. Thanks.
