    I’ve decided against the 6bra. Don’t want to spend time fire forming brass. I’m trying to decide between the 6br or 6xc.. probably go with criterion since I’m shooting the 12 lrp

    Get a Br, get good at reloading and reading the wind and when you can consistently shoot 200’s with the Br, consider getting something with a little more speed. Good luck and come shoot with us down in Laurel when you get a chance.

    I shoot a 6BR in PRS matches and didn’t have any trouble making hits on a target at 1068 in my last match. It’s more than capable.

    Third on Alex;) This case seems to be very forgiving with load work-ups. Just ff'ed about 60 cases in a new bra barrel. 29.5 to 29.7 Varget 105s hybrids jammed 10. Second outing confirmed that 29.6 was the best. All shot at 600 yards.

    Please get to know a local or quality gunsmith and give him your business. If you follow this path, you will be buying many barrels. Support the small guys that take care in what they make.
