Still working on fireforming my brass. Found a pretty dang good load for it though.  with 105 at 2750.
That is 5 shots at 110 yards.

It's an awesome "little gun" I refuse to shoot it because I'm sure I'd be hooked

That gun is a laser beam and ol BULLBLASTER can freaking shoot. I've heard tell he gets a little excited when it's time to shoot at fur but he is a cool cucumber at the range :chuckle:

Hey I only get excited when my rifle chamber freezes up and I canít get a cartridge in! And when I shoot moose or elk. Or big deers.... and coyotes.

Then you'd just have a one shot group :dunno:



 :chuckle:

Kinda tempting me to build something like that.

My one shot groups are always the best! Itís all downhill from there.

I've played with the BR, BRX and the Dasher but the BRA seems to really be catching on lately.

What's your fire forming load? It's shooting great, but the velocity is lower than I would have expected. That's not much over the 2670 fps I get from a 19" barreled 6 BR pistol with 30.3gr of Varget and a 105gr bullet.

Itís a pretty mild load I think. 28.5 grains h4895 with a 105 vld .007 ish off the lands. I was at 29 and jam with the bullet and was getting heavy bolt lift so I backed it off some.

30.3 is a case full of varget in a br isnít it?

I wouldnít have thought id see you commenting here. I mean it burns less than 100 grains and is only a 6mm.

I was actually very close to making a brx instead but a buddy (who shoots brx) talked me out of it.

Iím a big fan of the BR and all the variants. They really get a lot of performance out is a tiny little package.

30.3gr of Varget is the go-to load for the 6br and a 105gr bullet. Every BR Iíve shot worked well with something between 30.0 and 30.3gr of Varget

Good to know. Iím still pretty new to it all. Iím hoping to end up around 2900 FPS five or take. So far this thing is accurate with mostly everything except nosler rdf. They are 1.5 moa  :chuckle:

I am going to be trying some 103 Roy Hunter bullets soon.  I have been using 103 Vapor Trails.  I do have some 110 SMK for fire forming.  Have heard enough stories about them to not waste time chasing accuracy.

I am pretty sure Iíll be settling on 105 vlds at 2860. Itís consistently sub 1/2 and closer to 1/4 moa. Not a hot load by any means but not any risk of running into pressure from environmentals.
