    6BR loads

    I am waiting on my BR coming back from proof. While waiting what's people tried and tested loads for the BR?? At the moment the few people who I have spoke to have suggest 105AMAX and varget any one tried this particular load?

    105 amax with 30.2gn varget ( if you can find some) at 20" thou off the lands works great for me

    If you have trouble getting Varget, try Vit N140, good alternative, it's what I use behind 105's, I take it yours is an 8 twist.

    Varget under either 105gr A-max or 87gr V-max

    i have some N150 to try as an alternative. Supposed to be better than n140. Yet to find out myself.

    I love the 6br. I did some load testing with Varget with my 6br using 108gn Berger bullets. These were the results - a bit of lateral spread due to wind. These were all seated right out to the lands - Ended up with 29.6 Varget and 10 thou jump.

    I'm running 30 gr benchmark under a 87 gr pill,

    Also running it with a 70 gr pill and 32 gr of benchmark and I'm just shocked at just how good this load is in a tikka 595 with a 24" tube fully bedded, little recoil and no sight picture lose at all.

    Stunning is the word I found with this rifle and calibre from day one years ago,
