Anyone getting on the 6mm GT wagon?

I am. Brass and dies showed up today. Barrel should be here soon. Then off to the smith to get chambered and fitted.



243 vs 6mm GT


223, 6mm GT 70gt BT, 6mm GT, 6mm GT 90eldx, 6.5 creed 143 eldx.


I loaded the 70gr ballistic tip and 90gr eldx so that the bullet base is about to the bottom of the neck.

George makes some fine rifles, I was interested in the 6GT, but already have a 6XC.

I have a winchester m70 243 needing a new barrel, so 6mm GT it is.

Looked hard at all the 6mmís that fit the standard bolt face. From 6mm rem down to 6mm dasher and everything in between.

This seemed to fit the bill perfectly. Good barrel life, good powder selection, good bullet selection(with proper twist), small primer, feeds from a magazine and most importantly for me, no brass forming.

Time will tell...

70gr nosler ballistic tip, 90gr hornady eldx and 90gr Sierra game changer

These dummy rounds all feed and function perfectly as the gun sits.

I like it!! Try to keep us up on your results. It should do everything the dasher does plus feed great from AI magazines.

Is this another variation of something off of the 6BR case or 6.5x47 Lapua??

So the 6mm GT splits the difference between the 6 Dasher and 6x47 Lapua.

It's cool to have something different, but for me, I'd be a hard sell over building a 6x47 or 6mm CM.

I'm sure it will shoot very well though.

Brux 1 in 8 #3 showed up today.



So far I have 4 dummy rounds put together
70gr nosler bt at 2.300Ē
90gr Sierra game changer at 2.425Ē
90gr hornady eldx at 2.425Ē
103 hornady eldx at 2.500Ē

These OALís put the base of the bullet at or just below the shoulder/neck junction



Local gunsmith said he can have it together in 1-2 months.

Let the wait begin...

Iíve called my smith 2 times. It should be done in a week or 2. Heís behind on barrel work due to covid and reloading parts demand. Dale at Little crow gunworks. He makes the worlds finest brass trimmer also.

Iíve got about 120 rounds loaded so far. Varget, H4350 and h4831sc in the cases. Mostly barrel breaking in and some for pressure testing. Left the bullets on most seated long so I can seat accordingly later with rifle in hand.

Heres some of what Iíve got loaded.

Left to right. All with base of bullet at shoulder neck junction.

70gr Nosler bt
90gr Sierra gamechanger
90gr eldx
95gr Barnes lrx
100gr Sierra gamechanger
100gr btsp(barrel break in)
103 eldx
