OK there getting 2900 FPS with a 100+ gr 6mm bullet out of a AR! what is not to like about this round? other than its not a factory load?? i read on one sight that hornady is going to load it in 2010. That would be cool.
Im really liking this. there Is not a 243 WIN load in my LYMAN book that equils this.
a 100 grain soft point in this round would be a pretty decent deer round.
3100 FPS plus with 75 gr vmaks for varmits
think what it could dowith a 58 grain pill ???
dies are avaliable he shows AR mags for it so worse case scenario you get a mag addapter or weld lugs onto the AR mag. if I do a build I might make a custom extra long mag like I plan for my 223 so i can shoot the 105 VLD's seated fully out some thing a AR cant do.
I have a NDS-5 reciver sitting here and a couple m70 trunions. staandard bolt will work But I might mod out a 5.45 bolt for the longer lugs and slightlu further forward barrel position.
I could also just rebarrel my varmit set up and change the bolt. HMMMM maybe just a barrel assembly swap it is a screw build. Im not sure if can make the 223 length ejector live with x39 bolt face ID. If I could some how keep the longer ejector I could build this pretty damm fast as all it would need is a barrel chamberd to swap over. to much to think about today. Im going to research reamers on monday. what I like is I can do light barrel hunters or heavy barrel long range with the smae calibure brass and reamer. a 6 pound deer rifle for the Boy and a 18 pound 1000 yard varmit gun for me. .
If factory ammo became avaaliable this would be a really good conversion for the AK.
