Thread: 6x47sm good or bad?

  1. #1

    6x47sm good or bad?

    Ive just brought a 6x47 of a friend going away in need of money. I brought the rifle for what i thoight was cheep but because i had no slot for it on my ticket had to store it at my local gunshop. While it was there the own took an intrest in it and locked up all the costom parts to value the rifle. He then got back to me and said the price i paid was about right but being a friend told me it was far more rifle then what i need. I had it advertised on the internet and had alot of people ask about it but not knowing much about it i cant help them. Could someone help me with a price!

    spec:Custom built Brock and Norris 6x47 Swiss match rifle with a Stiller Predator action, Macmillan sporter stock (devcon and pillar bedded) 24" stainless fluted barrel, Jet Z Compact sound moderator and picatinny rail. Load data and dies to go with rifle! It was built to shoot 80gr Nosler but it also shoots well with 95gr berger VLD and 105 A Max. it has shot approximately 400 rounds through it! Open to sensible offers. Scope not included in package!!!

    So why are you selling it now? Because a gunsmith said it was more gun than you need!!!??? What exactly does that mean?

    It is probably one of the most accurate 6mm chamberings out there and Lapua brass is readily available for it. from what you are saying your RFD is suggesting you sell it to buy a lesser gun? Don't get that at all...

    Nope! I don't understand this dealer advice either & agree with Jamross. Sounds nuts to me. Get it on your ticket & use it! Cheers.

    I get where your both coming from but he tells me i could get a lesser gun made how i wanted for the money i paid for it and could still get for it. Not a good idea?

    It seems that your local dealer has already swayed you, why go for a lesser rifle, unless you think that its too much gun? whatever you decide be confident and happy with the outcome.

    I just dont no much about the caliber and the build of the rifle.The kid who had it spoke ever so well about it and i watched him take some amazing shots with it, mostly shots i wouldnt think of taking. I just wonder if someone else would have more use of the rifle then what i have!

    Don't agree with Brian here. I don't see Lapua producing 6x47 Swiss Match. http://www.6mmbr.com/albums/album_im...803/340387.htm

    Notwithstanding that, I would get the rifle home, use it and learn how well it can shoot. At some point in the future you can re-barrel it.

    Crack on, have fun. Regards JCS

    Nothing wrong with the caliber other than Home load only unless there is expanding ammo about now that has passed me by as its a target round if memory serves me well it was conceived to shoot on of the specialist 300m disciplines.

    If its on a predator and its from Mike the action would have come from me, it seems very strange your dealer saying its too much gun.

    You are absolutely right, I should have quantified my statement by saying the superb Lapus 6.5 mm brass was readily available and easily necked down .5mm to accommodate the 6mm chambering. And then realised it was not the Lapua offering...
