    I am at it again, I have 2 minty 40x actions, with all the work done that needs to have done, 1 a single shot and the other a repeater, got them both at a great price, the kind you can't say no too, anyway, picked up a Hart barrel in 6mm, 1-10" twist in a Rem/Send contour, thinking maybe a good twist for the 95grs, BIG question is which chambering, 6mm BR or 6mm Creedmoor, say out to 800yds?

    I have a 6mmBR already, ( doesn't everyone ), so building another in a different twist is not a issue, but the idea of a new chambering is great too, its a win win

    What do you guys think and worthless opining are welcome too !!!!

    Not sure what bullet you're planning to use, but definately not 95gr VLD's or SMK's with that slow of a twist.

    I would just wait. I have an idea that will put All of the "Creed" as well as Dasher guys on their heels. It won't be debuted till early to mid summer.....I truly cant believe no one has thought of it yet!

    Now, am I serious or pulling the Creed or ?? chain? Hold onto your reamer bux and find out. :)

    Something 90gr or under most likely. Remember velocity comes into play as well with regards to bullet stabilization.

    There are some bullets out there in the 80-85gr range to test as well

    A 6mm needs a heavier bullet to do well at 800 yard than a 1:10 twist can handle. Now a short range BR with Bibbs is a whole other creature. A 1:8 or 1:7 barrel on the repeater would make a nice Precision Rifle Series rig in either round. I would favor keeping them all in 6BR Norma and make life simpler and cheaper. YMMD

    600 is my cutoff for the 6br personally. Why not go with the 6x47?

    Think 1 in 10" will be to slow for 6 creedmoor,unless you are shooting lighter bullets

    I can limit it to just 500-600 yard work, didn't want to form another case, on this build just buying cases and load, I already do plenty of that,, that's why my question was between the Br case and the Creedmoor.

    You need a new barrel. 7.5 to 8 TW.

    if were you shoot has wind, go Creedmoor. If it has lots of calm days, go BR.

    heavier faster bullet bucks the wind better.

    Another option for the 10 twist barrel is to chamber it in a 6mm Norma Dasher. Norma cases are already formed and shoot 80 Bergers. 87 and 90 Bergers should shoot well with the added velocity over a straight 6BR

    6 BR, the extra powder and speed of the creedmoor isn't worth it. And 90gn bullets will do surprisingly well way out there if you're up to the task and not trying to agg for a benchrest record out there.
