    Lapua 6mm BR brass

    Anyone got any Lapua 6mm BR brass they want to sell?
    New or used is fine.

    I have most Lapua brass in stock, in blue boxes.

    IIRC I have a box of 6BR, great wee versatile case

    Yeah was just seeing if anyone had some unwanted brass in their collection before buying a new box. I want to mess with some Dasher fire forming and test some different chamber freebores before I set up my new rig.

    So you're going with the original Dasher rather than the Norma version with longer neck?

    Yeah.. only because there was a lead time on a Norma reamer and the std reamer was in stock. No real advantage with the longer Norma neck for me as Im running a 1-9" twist and the shorter 95gr bullets.

    Norma are now making factory dasher brass with the longer imp body and 40 deg shoulder bit with a neck almost as long as the parent 6mmBR brass which helps with neck tension on the longer 6mm bullets. (See pics)
    The 6mm BRX is just a 30deg shouldered 6mmBR blown forward about 50 thou.

    Cool, thanks.

    That would be a cock up with the wrong reamer.....
