6mm Creedmoor – Starting Load Development
This past year I asked the of the top-ranked precision rifle shooters in the country about the load they were running in their match ammo. This was the first year I asked about the specific powder and charge weight they were loading. Thank you to all the shooters who completed the survey! This article will cover what bullets, cases, primers, powders, and charge weights these elite marksmen shooting a 6mm Creedmoor or 6. Having such a large sample size allows us to draw more meaningful conclusions on what loads and components seem to work well across multiple rifle configurations. It can be tough to find good load data for a few of these cartridges, so I know this will help a lot of shooters. I think even the guys who completed the survey will be interested to see what their fellow competitors found that worked best in their rifles. Important: You should always reference a comprehensive reloading manual and start with the minimum recommended loads and work your way up. Failure to follow safe loading practices could result in severe personal injury including death or gun damage to the user or bystanders. Technical data and information are based upon survey responses from other shooters under specific conditions and circumstances. The author has not independently verified the accuracy of the data, and cannot be responsible for errors in published load data. The information is to be used at the sole discretion of the user and the user assumes all risk. It was only behind the 6mm Dasher in terms of popularity. Those things add up to better ballistics, meaning flatter trajectory and less wind drift. Obviously lots of shooters feel like the 6mm Creedmoor was the right ticket! On the chart above, the various colors represent where a shooter landed in terms of rank. For example, black indicates shooters who finished in the top 10 in the PRS, the darkest blue is people who finished in the PRS, and the lighter the blue, the further out they finished in overall standings. The chart legend itemizes the league and ranks each color represents, but basically the darker the color, the higher up the shooters placed. One unique aspect about the 6 Creedmoor is the number of guys that were using match-grade factory ammo, and not handloading their ammo themselves. Just ten years ago it would have been unheard of to try to compete at this level of competition with factory ammo, but manufacturing has come a long way! One of the compelling aspects of the 6mm Creedmoor and 6. You can reload if you like, but there is always the option to just go buy a box of ammo off the shelf, which many shooters value.

So I decided to switch the barrel job I wanted to do from 6. I decided not to do a 6x47 Lapua since I have a 6. Super nice guy, a top shooter, and one of the best rifle builders in the USA. These are bare, non-coated bullets also. Travis test fired the gun prior to shipping it to me, and I think he does a barrel break-in job? Nothing fancy other than a light VLD chamfer job, and remove the carbon from the primer pockets with a Sinclair uniforming cutter. I found the time today to test these out, and I must say it's always nice working with well made guns by people that are so good it makes this look easy! H, FM primers, 1x Hornady 6mm Creedmoor brass 2. Very nice rifle. Load workup doesn't look like it's going to be too hard. Thanks Scotty Dwh wrote:. Posted: Wed Apr 04, pm. Posted: Tue May 08, pm. Yah, Here's a interesting point I shot a match this past weekend, and for almost the entire time I had it set at 10xx! Yep, even while shooting. I had been dialing up and back down, and finally just left it for better time management on the 2 minute clock for each stage, two stages the RO's made the mistake of thinking seconds was a minute twenty 80 seconds which is not a lot of time, but since they started that way from the beginning they had to keep that for the two day match. On day two something went terribly wrong with my POI they were all high after running perfectly all day the day before. Cost me a lot of points only to start back to working correctly. I thought it might have been from dialing up in magnification and causing the POI go high? Not sure at the time so I started to take out. After stages the gun came back to life and I just left the scope at 12x, but after the day was done on the last stage I cleaned but timed out on the last two shots I asked the RO if I could test the POI at High Magnification 25x Held dead center and hit dead center, 2nd shot just slightly left Shoot enough, and weird things happen. I think the world of Jesse and his wife, and barely know Travis. His reputation as a rifle-builder is extreme! I'm glad you've got one of the best built rifles in America! And yes, I feel that strongly about the quality of R Bros rifles. Wish I had one! It's a good rifle, but being refreshed by one of the best rifle builders anywhere would be good. I've always liked the 6mm bore, starting back in ! Congrats on a good-shooting rifle. Posted: Wed May 09, am. I know Jesse, and his wife Kate.
