    Brass Making

    Ok one more question before I order, the decapping assembly or .22 button I found on Sinclair says its for the .22 hornet. I'm assuming this is what I'm after since its .22 cal? I don't know why it specifies hornet and that's it for sure. Is that what I need Greg?

    I pulled the trigger on the 20 inch barrel. Since I have the 285 and 267 bushings for my Redding S die I just need to order the 250 correct? Can I go straight to that from the 267? And a .22 cal button kit, I almost forgot that!

    That's where I'm trying to find a balance. My 6x6.8 shoots like a house on fire but I built it awful heavy. I want to make sure I make this one more "portable" but keep as much velocity as possible. It's always a toss up

    I know this is off the subject a bit but I need your advice. I want to build a 22x6.8 for a varmint gun and keep the weight manageable. I want to shoot 50 gr bullets. Would you say a 1:8 twist? And would I lose much of I went with an 18 instead of 20 barrel. What would you say is optimal keeping weight in mind?

    Thanks for the info. I'm going to get one on the way.

    Hey Greg my 6.8 Redding S for will work if I get a few more bushings correct? That's what I use for my 6x6.8. And a new expander and I should be in business?

    Awesome I'm going to do it. You guys have some preliminary loading data when I get close?

    Brass Making

    This cartridge has me interested. I already have the Redding die set up for my 6x6.8 so I should be able to just pick up a couple more bushing to load. I'd like to build one in a 20" barrel and keep the barrel light enough to carry the gun as a varminter. Do you know what kind of velocity I could expect out of a set up like that using 50 gr bullets? Or what grain bullet would be optimal?

    Loading the 6X6.8

    Here are 2 separate groups after I made some changes on my rifle. New JP 15" handguard, new 2 stage national match trigger and mounted a Burris C4 scope. Barrel was clean on the top 3 rounds which is the old standby 58gr Vmax. There are 3 in the black which was my second group after fouling the barrel. That's a load I got from Greg and I used a 105 Amax under 26.7gr of RL 15. Length was 2.290 and used CCI small rifle primers. Forgot my chrony but this is another interesting load. Shoots awesome. Will post the speed next time I get out.

    Loading the 6X6.8

    The 85 Sierra Game Kings are doing very well so I haven't tried much else in that weight range lately. I also couldn't get the 87 hornady HP to shoot but the same weight Vmax did great. Bullet selection locally sucks but if I came across the Nosler's I would definitely give them a shot.

    6x6.8 Handloads (Finally)

    I didn't know if you got your load down but I found a good one using CFE and Sierra 85 gr Game King BTHP. I used 30.8 grains over CCI standard small rifle primers. I had to seat them clear down to 2.241 before they would chamber. Chronographed at 2900 fps but very accurate. Shot a .5 inch group out of my 22 inch barrel.
