I just built my 6x45 AR and have had great luck with two different 70 grain bullets with BLC2 powder. I got good results from most powdor loadings. I think I have a viable varmint round with these lighter bullets. My barrel is 20", rifle-length gas with target crown. Flawless operation!
I'm also looking for a bullet appropriate for deer. I bought some 85 gr bullets (Hornady Interbond) and loaded them also with BLC2 powder from the 6x45 load data available on this forum. I loaded a good range of powder but got dismal results. 6" spread at 50 yards!!!
Can anyone recommend powders that might be better suited for the heavier bullets in this 1x9" barrel? I'm looking for accuracy in the 85gr range.
Are there appropriate 6mm bullets for deer in the 70-75gr range? (The 6.8 hog killers say V-Maxes do fine on deer but are marginal on hogs.)
Thanks in advance,
