    22x6.8 question

    Gas port is .080 per BA. I guess when I run out of brass I'm gonna have to try a 6x6.8. I love the 6mm family.

    Starline 6.8 Brass; initial thoughts

    Looks like 22 Nosler brass!

    To tighten, or not to tighten...

    Another reason to use Aero Precision M4E1 uppers!

    22x6.8 question

    I'm running 28.0 gs Varget. No AGB and have to run a 2.4 oz buffer or it won't cycle. Can't use any bullets under 45 gs either,not enough gas. I know it's under gassed but it's dropping brass with this load at 4 oclock at about 4 feet away. I can live with that.

    22x6.8 question

    The Hornady Hagar brass doesn't get beat up as bad on the head and rim and is better that way than the Nosler but if I can get 3 loadings out of them I'm lucky. I'm using it for groundhogs so the faster the better with the Sierra 65SGK. I would definitely give Starline a try!

    22x6.8 question

    Not sure I agree with you about case life. After 2 loadings in the NosGAr the Hornady brass won't hold a primer or blows them out during firing. I can't get good consistent accuracy out of it either despite what I consider a high end build and quality reloads.

    22x6.8 question

    If the 6mm hagar is just the 6.8 necked to 6mm,why won't 6.8 brass work? Different shoulder angle?

    22x6.8 question

    I'm currently running a 22 NosGar and wondering what I'll do when my supply of Hagar brass runs out. Can 6.8 brass be sized down to 22 in one step or will it have to go to 6mm first? I see Starline is making 6.8 brass now.

    OK,I'll bite. What's the difference between this and a 6mm Hagar? Shoulder angle?

    New upper build

    I just liked the profile of the SPR. Not sure about the ramps but it can't hurt.
  14. Bought one for my 22 Nosgar build,so far it works as good as any other bcg i've used.

    New upper build

    I have a BA 18" SPR Wylde barrel with rifle length gas and it is the best shooting AR I ever had. Shoots under 1" at 200 yds with 77 SMK's. Never a gas problem with this one.
