    6BR min and max powder weight

    Hi, all Does anyone know the min and max powder weight for :-

    6mmBR
    viht N135
    87gn vmax

    can only find data for upto 85gn or 87gn but using varget. Embarrassingly I have got a reloading manual 😳

    cheers

    Hi
    at 30 grains you are into a compressed load with Vit N135 but the pressures are not too bad , but N135 is not a good powder for a 6br there are better powders to use I would possibly re-think your powder
    hope this helps a bit

    extrapolate from 90gr
    curiously no listing for N135 between 77 and 90gr

    irritates the hell out me when they do that
    similar gaps in the .243 75gr N160 data

    There are two 6mm BR cartridges - 6mm BR Rem and 6mm BR Norma - so not sure which you're using. You're probably on the wrong site here, but this link covers both:-

    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    As above the 6 mm BR Rem/Norma (only slightly different case specs between them). The difference between the 6 mm BR Rem and the 6 mm BR Norma are slight, but in a tight chamber machined to the Norma case specs a 6mmbr Remington case may not fit (tight near the head of the case) while Remington cases will fit in Norma chambers.
