I was in the process of having one done up until bca came out with ambextrous charging .243s
There is always chatter about the 6 Hagar but does anyone have one and what are the speeds. Published data is slow if I recall. I have brass and have been tempted to order a barrel. I remember having a discussion with woa how light bullets may not be that far from the lands at mag length because the heavier match bullets are seated fairly deep to get down to mag length. Maybe this is why data is slow since the deep seated bullet is eating case capacity. Has anyone been down this road?

Not on a 6 Hagar but a 2 grain less dti. I use the a chronograph watching speeds and primers. I look for spikes and plateaus. The light bullets close to the lands would be a good thing. Finally I like to see if I can get the number of loadings I want on the primer pockets. That is the final verification of pressure for me
