    Been lurking a while, gents.

    Have a couple of questions that are kind of off subject.

    Have any of you shot the Dasher in a shorter barrel? I'm thinking 18"-22".

    If you have, what velocities have you been getting with 95s, 105s, 110s, etc?

    I'm planning on building a short(er) Dasher rifle that will be suppressed 90% of the time. It will be used for PRS style and long range rucking type matches.

    Thanks in advance!

    Would appreciate a look at what you've compiled as well. This is my first Dasher!

    32.6 I think and 32.9 gr. of Varget.
    110 SMK
    205M primer

    Shot the 32.9 load in a match with windy switching conditions at 300 yards and one wind flag out of 14 shooters. I came in 2nd with a 397 17X. 1st place had a 397 23x.
    I am going to move the bullet out 10 thou. more for the next match and move to 33 gr. of Varget. 3rd Saturday of this month I'll report back.
    Very close to 3000 fps right now.

    Has anyone ever lost (split or other) a 6 BR Lapua case while Hydro forming into 6 Dasher cases?

    Yes

    I found if I hit them lightly to start, then progressively firmer they split less often.

    I am having a br converted to dasher it’s an 8.5” twist so I’m limited to 95gr vld’s. What is everyone’s recipe for this bullet.

    I’ve shot a many matches with a 8.5 twist and Berger 105 and 108 bullets. They shoot really well to be honest.
    Start around 32.0 Varget and work up from there once you have fire formed brass

    James, I think 37.0 of Varget with a 105 or a 95 gr. is a bit on the high side. (especially for a starting load)
