I keep telling myself this is it, last one. We’ll see.

I’ve had the hankering for a 6mm-223 for years. Plentiful brass, and I have a lot of bullets. So I’ve started collecting. So far the Bighorn Origin lefty action is still in process, over a month late. The good news is the McMillan Hunters Edge I ordered in February just shipped. Hart barrel is in the works, Mountain rifle contour. Wyatt’s mag box showed up yesterday.

Seems like someone here was a 6-223 fan? Wondering about a reamer, maybe custom to get away from being stuck at AR mag length. Let me know what you think.

Twist rate????
I have a 6x45 and a 6x47, but they are both in center-grip XP-100's

A .223 is probably more sensible but that’s never been my strong suit when it comes to cartridge selection. Haha. I have a heavy 6x45 right now, put it together about a month ago with a X-Caliber CF barrel. I regrettably haven’t had the time to fool with it. The new build is going light, at least as light as I can get it. Like to be 7# or less all in.

Am i missing something or wouldn't the 6mm-223 be the same as the 6x45?

On a side note the 25-45 sharps has interested me for a while now
