Really want a 16in but going with 6. I hope its Magpul but I highly dought it but you never know! I also have hunted almost anything I can afford to hunt and have been hunted by those I could not afford to lose to. Another guy is wanting to trade me a savage creedmore. I really dont know what Alexander Arms was thinking with a whole new round in 6. Once you have enough power to reliably kill an animal or enemy soldier , does more power really help? This year I did have to chase 2 for about a 100 yards, both good shots but didnt drop.
The powder works great for loads between 77 to 168 grains. Reloading ammunition at home can be a hobby or a necessity. About 2 years ago we started getting requests for 6. And which brings up back to the comparison. I am new to reloading and want to try the 130 gr Berger vld for some long range hog hunting. Does anyone have any load data for this? I love the 7mm-08 and 308 so a 6.
Not all gunpowders are created equal. One search revealed 4 selections of 6. Perseverance, quality products, and attention to detail have certainly paid off for Starline. Both calibers do quite well, 6. Sorry I couldn't be much help.
Naturally, hunters would also be attracted due to its light recoil along with plenty of velocity and energy to harvest deer and antelope. The average accuracy for the 19 handloads tested was 1. In fact, I have encountered cases sized in small-base dies that were larger in base diameter than those sized in regular dies. Another trick to lengthen brass life is to size fired cases just like you would for a bolt gun, i. Depends on your purpose, though 6mm is ideal for a huge variety of applications.
The buck ran just over a hundred yards before dropping. Almost 50% of the cost is related to the casing, which implies that reloading will save you almost 50% of the money, if not more, than buying a new pack of ammo. Here's the content of an email I got from Accurate a little while ago: Mutt, Since A-2520 is really too slow burning for the 6. For my handloads, I used standard dies for both rounds; Hornady dies for the 6. The Grendel drops about 10 Inches more at 800 yards. Doing it wrongly can, and will, be compromising or even fatal. Kind of hard to tell but did you put that Barnes right on the shoulder? It comes down to personal choice and economics.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I tried loading 30 grains of blc2 and blew out a primer. It is expected that the person reloading is proficient in reloading or is acting under the supervision of another experienced reloader. The velocity with the Nosler 100-grain AccuBond was over 2,600 fps. And have you ever miked the bases of cases sized in regular and small-base dies? I had used Starline handgun cases for years, but had no experience with their rifle brass. Since there is no danger of high pressures it will take quite a bit of compression and the most powder you will be able to fit in a case will be between 31. Nice to have a handload that matches factory specs and is devastating on game.
I've got some limited information on loading the 6. This is the same method used by Krieger and obermeyer. My opinion is that if the 14 could be reliably chambered in 6. The powder is very inexpensive and readily available which makes it a good choice. I know it does not list the grendel as a supported cartiridge, but some of the supported ones are close to the in caliber and bullet weight.
Before I started load development, I first wanted to check the uniformity of the weights and lengths of Starline cases for the two rounds. I do not hunt,so no help there. Cheeper than dirt, Brownells, and many others are very competitive. I have no problems hitting or making 650 yard shots! No blood on the ground but a full chest cavity. The bullet I shoot out of my creedmore will expand at 1000 yards.
