gotta love it when a plan comes together!

Tim, how fast is the SAUM slinging the 150's?

There are faster loads, but this one averaged 3158.

Tim how is recoil in the 270 WSM if its a standard 7 1/4 pound or so hunting rifle? What would it be comparable to?

I guess very similar to your 7mm Saum. I was able to shoot it free recoil, with no second hand on the rifle at all. I shot it again today as many here seem to think the RL19 is the trick, it isn`t in this particular rifle.

Whelen Man, I hope I can make a shoot you are going to.

I`d like to meet and greet anyone like minded.

The BRX should be an excellent choice, and it is easier on the pocket book with 6BR dies already available.

You will want a 243 FL or SB die to size the base.

I shot today at 600 and turned in my personal best 5 shot group, it was with the 6/47 and the 108 Bergers and the group was 2.150".

Still have some work to do on the Lt 6.5/284, but am culling loads and seeing a path and will have it dialed in soon.

Last Saturday I shot 3 groups that agged 2.9".

I want to do better.

Todays 2+ inch was a shot in the arm toward that goal.

Sounds like you're getting it all together if you're pushing 2 inches. At the first shoot I attended back in the summer I asked one of the top shooters what they considered a good group. He said anything under 2 inches was considered very good. I learned though that only a few if any that size are shot per competition. I've seen some in the ones but only a few and that's out of a lot of good competitors. If you're pushing 2 inches you should do well in the shoots.

When I ordered my dies I also ordered a 308 Winchester body die per the advise of another BRX shooter. Just last night I sorted brass according to weight and took my lightest 50 cases and sized them up to 6.5mm to set a shoulder for fireforming and then sized them about halfway down to 6mm. I'll have to get the barreled action before I can do my final sizing for a crush fit for fireforming.

I've got some of the Sierra 107s I'm going to use for fireforming but I also bought some Berger 108s and hope my rifle likes them as they are the bullet I'd like to use. We'll see.

I figured they were shooting clover leafs
Good info Whelen Man
Heck I can shoot maybe 2" groups
Well No pobably not. Thats some good shooting
I shot 2 soda cans full of dinomite once right after one another at 750 yds., with a spotter once. Does that count \:D

This rifle sure liked the load. I hope yours will too.

Whelen Man, I had a 6Dasher reamer made last year, but took a different path with the 6/47 when it appeared Lapua brass was about to enter the country. I have 2 Krieger barrels about to be delivered if not already that were ordered months ago.

I still have a craving for the Dasher, and will probably chamber at least 1 if not both of the Kriegers in that chambering.

I don`t really know, though as I don`t have a 6BR barrel for my Lt gun.

The Dasher/BRX is the way to go to me anywho.
