    Default 6MMAR TURBO IMPROVED

    6mmAR Turbo 40 Improved

    IM LOOKING AT ONE OF THESE FOR DEER IN A LIGHT WEIGHT BUILD FOR MY SON.
    There are a lot of 243 barrels around cheap that can be rechamber in one of these. uses grendal bass so the std bolt will work there using ar mags so theres got to be a mag that will work for the AK and this thing is fast. dies are readly avalaible. Id do a 6.5 grendal but blanks are more and he is only 10 and recoil is going to be a issue. THIS THING IS AS FAST OR FASTER THAN A 243 WIN JUDGING FROM MY BOOKS I still might do a grendal any way

    there is also a 223 ARturbo also that Im looking realy close at for a varmit build with a standard bolt. all these rounds could be formed from 7.62x39 brass BTW.

    INTERESTING AND IF IT WORKS IN A AR IT SHOULD BE SAFE IN THE AK. IM ALSO LOOKING AT A 6.5- 30RAR WILD CAT. i WANT A SMALL LIGHT PACKAGE THAT A SMALL 10 YEAR OLD CAN HOLD UP AND SHOOT FROM A DEER STAND OUT TO 100 YARDS.

    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.
