    The Grinch took the 2 Gun this weekend at St Louis Missouri. Greg King piloted his 6MM Grinch for the win! Conditions were fairly light on Saturday but were a bit rougher at 200 on Sunday! It's way too early to trumpet the demise of the 6PPC, however it looks like the Grinch can hold its own. Actually 3 of the top 10 were were shooting the Grinch ( Greg King, Brett Stroud and myself Bart Sauter)

    Congratulations to Greg King for his fine win!

    Is the Grinch a no-turn neck and if not, how much of a turn are you using? Thanks.

    Cannot even find a picture of the Grinch. Care to post a comparison shot of one beside a 6br or Dasher?

    I built a 6BR in 2003" for a Egg Shoot gun 12tw barrel to shoot 80gr bullets. I shot Jeff Fowler's http://www.6mmbr.com/Schronce600.html I sold the gun a few years ago, but I still have a 12tw barrel for one of my 6BR's. I still have just a few 80gr Fowler's made by Jeff. I will have give your bullets a try.

    Is this as much hassle as fireforming 6BR LAPUA to Dasher? Or, can I just shoot a standard BR round and it fireforms?

    thanks,

    Hard to tell but by the pic it looks more like rim and diameter are smaller than 6BR, maybe Lapua 6.5 Grendel case?

    From what I understand it's Grendel based, necked down, blown forward with 40 degree shoulder, fireforming required. Probably more hassle than Dasher to fireform and when you're done you have a case that's only got capacity of about a 6BR. May be great for short range but out longer you'd probably want the extra velocity of the Dasher.

    We get velocities of 2950, 2960 pushing a 105 gr bullet out of this case. Maybe it's just me but that's not to bad.

    But what's case life at those speeds? Talking with a few 2920 seems to be the sweet spot for the 105's in the Grinch.

    That is true I was just saying it's capable of it. On case life we are not sure we have reloaded them 8-10 times and still using them.
