    How many use a RVC barrel on their 6mmBR and what is the recoil like?????

    55-70gr. bullets, varmint gun, all day shooting.

    I`m thinking this should weigh in around 13-13.5 lbs....

    Rem Varmint Barrel contour

    With my 6BR set up like that I can spot my shots 75-80% of the time. Been shooting prairie dogs with it on a number of occasions.

    I was wondering what would effect recoil with the 6 BR, 70 gr or < bullets and 13 lb weight. Was imagining a porting system or a brake, or something.

    I’ve shot a buttload of 87-95 grain bullets through a 13.5 lb 1:10 6 BR. The recoil was very manageable. I could usually see the dirt thrown up on the berm behind my target at 300 yards.

    You could always have a brake installed...
