I’m new to this forum. I just purchase a Unfired BHW 243 LBC Barrel with8 twist from a person in Oregon. Looking for loading info and brass forming tips. Not new to 6mm as I have a 6-250 and 6 PPC. Thanks
Making brass is easy. Just get a Grendel bushing die, Redding Type S, and neck the case down. No need to move the shoulder area. A 295-296 should do it for a final bushing. Just adjust for neck tension.
Loading is easy. Top end 6 PPC data and then move up to bottom end 6 BR. Works like a champ. Get a Sinclair Distance to Lands Tool so you can find your seating MAX. Buy ASC 6.5 Grendel mags and you can load to 2.316 nominal.
I use Lapua brass only though Starline just sent me 100 cases to wring out.
28 grains of 8208 XBR and a 95 SMK is magic.
The best firearm for self defense? Any loaded one will do.
