    For pure accuracy in windless conditions and only going on my experience with a BRA that has 800rnds on it they are neck and neck. I shot the 6br at last years 500m Fly States and the BRA this year in fairly rough conditions and I believe the BRA has an edge in the rougher conditions, I shot higher scores in both classes with the BRA than with BR. Just my experience so far.

    I'm posting it just in case it might come in handy for someone. I searched through this thread and did not find any load data for a 115gr bullet in a 6BR case.

    Yes, I know, and I agree that a 115gr bullet is heavy for a 6BR case. My guideline is that the bullet should weigh no more than 2 to 3X, maybe 3.5X the weight of the powder charge. I have a special application that calls for a heavier bullet.

    Lapua 6mmBR Norma case, neck skimmed to .013", CCI 450 primer, 115gr, RBT DTAC with HBN. The barrel had been treated with HBN.

    29.2gr VV N150 yielded a MV of 2,708, ES 24, SD 9.

    Again, it is a special application. I started at 30.0gr and was a 2,750ish, faster than I wanted it to be so I decreased the load until I got close to the speed I wanted, 2,700 fps.

    I also tried some Berger 115gr Target bullets with 30gr of Varget. I did not like the recoil impulse so I switched to VV N150. The Berger had to be seated very far into the case which resulted in more powder compression/crush than I like.

    Hey Steve,
    Are you never going to tell us what your special application load is? Please.

    My 6 br seems to like 29.7 gr of Varget behind a 107 smk seated at .016 off the lands
    my best 5 shot group so far is under 1.5 at 600 yards
    Now can I do it again is the question?
