This is a link to a fellow that has done a great compilation on books and shooters. Use at your own risk as normal when you get something from the 'net. I assure you that your mileage WILL vary!! ;D

Looks like the 6X45 load data PDF from Buckammo is gone.

I have a physical copy I printed out earlier this year. But no PDF file.

Man I'm glad I found this forum. Being 60 I was a long time bolt gun guy. I did buy my first Colt AR in 1973 for a whopping $225. Used it for ground hog hunting. Three years ago I bought a S&W 300 whisper AR and used it deer hunting. Got hooked big time. Was amazed on how accurate the AR's had become. Well now I have more AR's, Geissele triggers, wrenches,vise blocks etc,etc. Which brings me here.
I building a 6x45 with a 18" , 1/8 twist SS McGowan bbl AR. I'm planning on bullet weights in the 70 to 85 range. Barrel will have Saami chamber specs.
I was glad to see the pdf found and posted by geepee3 ( Greg ?)
I'd appreciate any personal load suggestions.

Sorry for the long intro but being new I thoight I'd introduce myself.

Welcome to the board and a great choice in cartidges. I've been shooting one since the 80's. Lately the go to has been a stout charge of RL 15 under an 87 Hornady. Prioir to that it was 748. Hodgdon has so much data as dsoes Accurate you are home free.  I've shot it in many police sniper matches and done my share of podium standing. I've got some lighter bullet data around here if you get stuck.

 

It's not a SAAMI cartidge so in a sense you wil now be a wildcatter. That is nice becuse now you can be legally allowed to experiment.... :segrin: I use Hornady and Redding dies.

 

Aska awy and we'll help you out.

Welcome to the Forum Sir.

I have been shooting mostly 72 and 75 grain bullets lately and still have a bunch of other projectiles in the range you mentioned to test out.

My 18" BHW barrel loves the Barnes 72 gr. Varmin-A-tors with 26 gr of IMR 8208XBR or H335.

I'm also getting good results with Sierra 75gr Varmint bullets with 25.5 gr of IMR 8208XBR.

I have only been shooting this caliber since May. So I'm still figuring things out too.

Well the Buckammo and PCammunition links have been dead for a little while.

I have the download on my computer and being a plumber and not a computer guy was not sure how to post it.

It looks like I can link it from Google Drive so here goes.

 

6X45mm Load Data 8_1  

 

https://drive.google...FFYMFQtRTg/view

 

This was the last version available.

Enjoy

I'm still looking for load data for load data for 6x45, specifically for SMK bullets. Also what is the heaviest bullet that can be loaded for AR length mags?

The link above will give you some idea of what you need. Data is available from Hodgdon and Westen/Accurate powders on the net.  Magazine length would be 2.316 (nominal) in an ASC magazine loading with a GI 2.260 magazine will  really cut you down on choices.. You can load up to the 95 SMK with them but you give up quiet a bit of capacity. An 87 is the best trade off on magazine fed bullets IMHO.

Ok. My next question is can you use .223 Rem bushing neck sizing with the appropriate 6mm size bushing? I can find a Redding bushing die in 6X45.

Sierra lists the next lightest Matchking bullet to 95 gr as a 70 gr.

I'm running a .260" Redding bushing on average. 

I have bushings from .258"-.262" to try different neck tension.

Also I am using a PMA neck expanding mandrel instead of a Redding expanding button in the die.

So you're just using a .223 bushing die with .243 range bushings?
Reloading data seems pretty sketchy for 6x45. Can't seem to find just what l want. Also, as popular as .243 is, I expected to see a
better selection from Sierra.
