Wanting opinions. Is a .236 or a .237 Bore better for 6mm bench rest shooting?
post what caliber and bullet you want to run.. people gonna ask..
6br 107 gr bullets
Pick one it's not a deal breaker. Most fast twist barrels are 237 unless you buy a Brux which only come in 236.
my smith still tells me to get the .236
You would probably never notice the difference. When in doubt, go with gunsmith’s recommendation.
+1. Ive never been able to tell the difference.
Ive heard a good sounding theory or explaination, but I cant put it into words like someone else may be able to. Im not knowledgable enough on it.
Something about the tighter bore will crate more pressure faster so shorter bullets slower twist rate, opposite for 237...
also heard its a difference in the rifling hight inside the bore, .237 cuts into and grips the bullet a thousanth more than the .236, thurs creating a pressure difference to push the bullet out...
DONT quote me on this by any means!!!...

The .236" has taller lands by 1/2 thousands, It is the default bore size that Krieger offers for their long range 6mm barrels. Anything listed faster than 10 twist is .236" Brux as mentioned only offers .236". I have owned .237" and have had excellent results, just like longer life, and barrels less picky to lot to lot variations in bullet diameters.
I have used both in both short and long range competition I prefer .237.
Have you pinned them to check the actual size, I doubt it. A good barrel is a good barrel. How thick is a human brown hair-.003to.004. .0005 looks small doesn't it?
