I received a call from my customer telling me that the 6CM was banned from Mineral Wells. I was only working with the information I had. I apologize for the facts regarding this being incorrect. I did not post this to boots sales...only to brag. Please understand a few things: 1. I am not a gun builder, only the designer of a cartridge. 2. The cartridge I designed has out performed my expectations and, as far as I know, every customer I've serviced is happy with my product. 3. I make about $50.00 on every 6CM chambered,graciously give to me by the smith doing the work as I'm bring him the business. All work is at his normal costs) and I provide more personal support for my customers than all other people that supply a similar product,with the possible exception of Robert Whitley). I am in contact with every customer well after the product is delivered offering advice on loading, shooting and other. 4. I did not enter into this to make money, only to prove a point. That point is that a 6mm cartridge can have a barrel life well beyond 2500 rounds and shoot less than 1/2 MOA for the duration. That point has been pr oven as no one has shot out a barrel to date and some of the barrels have over 3500 rounds. 5. Initially I thought I might turn this into a side business and possibly I could have. But this is not what I do and to do it properly it would take more time than I have. 6. In my opinion the 6CM is a great cartridge and I am very proud of how it has been received by the majority of the shooting community. Furthermore, I'm very happy that people are now understanding the difference slow burning, single based powders make in extend barrel life. Before, I started hammering these boards this concept may have been communicated, but after the concept has been accepted. Not because of what my claims, exclusively, but because of my claims supported by the other shooters who already understood the formula. Simply, I had an idea, it proved out to be better than I had expected, it does and can affect many peoples quality of life and I'm very proud of what I have come up with. Possibly, it is a personality flaw in that I brag as much as I do and in the bragging try to get other people to try my idea, that I know works. I'd like to apologize for these efforts, but many shooters have benefited from them and for those guys, no apology is necessary. I like being some what controversial and in the process getting people to think. So burn me if you want to but my intentions are all about getting people to shoot the best they can and extend they dollars,regarding barrel life) in the process. Joe Hendricks PS...the facts are the facts and out of my cartridge...115 DTAC, 3100 fps with 4000 rounds of barrel life! I am proud of that!
