    Although I'm now shooting Varget in my BR and Dasher...for a couple of years I shot 29.5gr of H4895 & 105 VLDs, and was very satisfied.....I've been thinking about buying a jug at Powder Valley....

    Got my fluted bolt back from (Dennis in VA) and promptly took my 6br out to the range. My favorite load of 30.1gr of Varget, Lapua brass, and 107SMK grouped into .25" at 200yds. I love the 6br.

    Anyone using Remington 7 1/2 primers in their 6BR? I have been satisfied with CCI450's but have a chance to by some Rem 7.5's very reasonable.

    I just switched my 6PPC bbl off my Farley action and put the 8 Twist Bartlien 6BR bbl back on,,
    there are a couple guys I shoot UBR with shoot the Savage 8 twist with 68 gr bullets so I thought I would give the 6BR 8 twist a try with the 68 JDS BT and with 34 grs Varget shot back to back 5 shot groups under .200,,

    I would try to copy that factory load you have, 1.5 at 600 is great, copy same bullet,powder and case dimensions, and use light neck tension!!! good shooting!!

    Savage Model 12, small shank
    X-caliber 28 in 1-8 twist, 6mmBR Norma
    29.9 gr Varget producing 2850 fps.
    Lapua, and RCBS GMM with .266 bushing
    CCI450
    105 Amax at -.005
    Took it to 1000 yds yesterday in winds gusting 12 to 18 and it did amazingly well considering the bullet was pretty much out of steam at that range and I was shooting off a bi-pod. But at 750 yds it was a real hammer!

    I will be loading Berger 105's, Lapua brass turn neck .268, fed primers, not sure of the powder yet. Looking for recommendations have varget, h335, and several others on hand. This will be shot out of a 15" barrel.
