Re: New Barrel

All well and good but what would happen if it was a dud, would you expect a warranty? Nope. The only barrel manufacturer that springs to mind that offers a guarantee of sorts is Benchmark barrels. I haven't had a dud barrel yet, and only one of my friends springs to mind that really had a shocking ...

Re: New Barrel

Didn't bother with any particular procedure for my last barrel which went on a 6BRA. Put 25 rounds down the tube whilst fireforming, went home and gave it a good scrub. To this date it's probably been the best barrel I've had. All well and good but what would happen if it was a dud, would you expec...

Re: 6mm xc brass ?

Your other option is run neck up Lapua 22-250 brass and fireform 6XC brass from it.

Re: 6mm 1-7.5 twist rate

If you're going for a 6mm creedmoor you'd be better off looking at 95gr pills and heavier for what is a pretty aggressive twist rate.

I'm sticking with 105s for this cartridge, although in the early days of load development, 2209 is proving disappointing with loads tried from 38.8 to 40gr and I cant get an SD below 10 so I'm going to try alternative powders.

Re: WTB bartlein 6.5mm barrel 30inch #9hv profile 1:8T

You could try Ziersch Custom Rifles in SA - He has a Brux 6.5 HV 7.5 twist and and HV 8 twist - both 30 long. There's also a Pac Nor which is a bit cheaper.

Re: 183SMK LOAD IN 7RSAUM

I've tried RL23 in a 280AI - It's showing promise but still more testing to do - fouls a lot less than 2209 among others things.

Re: Nosler rdf

From all reports that I've read - most of them US based, the RDFs like to be jumped, in some cases quite a bit - anywhere from 40 thou out to 90. I did see a guy running the 140's over in Perth out of a 6.5x47 Lapua - from memory he was jumping them around 50 thou with reasonable results.

I've never seen a Hornady bullet match the level of accuracy obtained from a Berger.
