6mm BR or Keep the 308?


My shooting this year has been limited to the close to home matches, and it’s taught me a lesson that I should have known before. When time is limited, stick with what works. My foray into hunter class has proven rewarding and very informative. The thing that score-ee.jpgI learned that has stuck in my mind is that the 30’s require more tinkering than the 6’s.

I have done well with the 22PPC and the 6PPC in the varmint classes. My 308’s, however have been inconsistent and I’m sure that the variety of ranges and altitudes has something to do with it. I don’t have the time to arrive early and establish a load for the elevation at each range. My best scores are at ranges with elevations similar to the elevation in West Yellowstone. The greater the elevation, the better my scores. I’m no ballistician, but it makes sense that pressure and air density play a great role in this.

So I’m going to have some BR’s built. A 6mm BR and a 30 BR.

I’ll be relating the progress of these tools during the next several months. For now you can check the best web resources for the BR movement at the following excellent sites:
