Been dreaming about one of them for 3 years and finally ordered a barrel from Sharp Shooters Supply. Darn thing stopped fouling at about 10 rounds so seems to be a good tube.

Looking for someone that shoots one so that I might be able to get some loads for her. Presently trying out 32.0 grains of RL15 wi. 70 Grain Sierra.

Anyone shoot one here?

Gee Bitty, I almost forgot about the 6 Int. Man, it been years. It kinda was one of those forgotton cartridges after the introduction of the 6PPC/BR.

Anyway, just for kicks and bad manners, I dumped this out on LFAD using a 24" barrel with 62 Bergers and N140



If there is a bullet/powder you want to try, let me know and I run it with those componts fer ya. Ah, need the actual barrel length too.

Later,
Bill

Thanks very much but what I need to do is send you a thousand dollars for pointing me in the right direction. It's been hard as heck finding imformation for that booger. I seem to always want to do things tha hard way. Here are my specs:

* 26 inch barrel
* {any}70 grain bullet
* Powders I wanna try are AA2015 - H4895 - RL15
* Am staying away from Vita powders because they are too hard to find

Just shot LFAD an e-mail and will purchase said from them but will would still like it if you can run the above numbers for me.

Thanks a bunch and I mean it.

LOL, a grand! I'll take it in 20s please.

On a serious note(?) here are some for H4895 to get you started. Sierra lists a load of 34.6-4064 for their accuracy load with a 70. Sorry, but I can't remember what we used to shoot, but I think it as 322.
Anyway...........




Maybe this will help get ya started anyway. LFAD dosen't come up with any data for 2015 or R15.

Finally got that booger shooting. Wound up using Varget in 34.5 & 35 grains with a 75 grain Hornady V-Max....Woooool!

Just took all of my last 20 groups and did the math, the average group size for 80 shots is .310.

Would try some other powders but this is good enough for shooting Prairie Dogs and anything else small. Oh, the speed is 3300 fps. Very Happy
