    6br build

    after reading about the canadian and the rifle I thought I might get a winter project with no rush to get it finished, I have always wanted a 6br in my cabinet for some reason and was wondering what people have built theirs on. A quick flick through tm shows Howas are pretty cheap and pretty easy to get stocks for. I seem to remember a few people building rifles on the howa action, any feedback? suggestions of other actions etc?
    I have enought rifles to keep me busy but was keen on a challenge of building a cheap accurrate varminter that is equally cheap to run (already got a 223 so dont suggest that )

    this further sparked my interest
    Savage Striker in 6mmBR

    current thinking is howa/savage 10 action, boyds left hand/right hand action laminate stock, see how that goes and develop from there

    Those savage target 6brs are hard to beat

    The 6BR is a great cartridge. I don't think I've seen one that doesn't shoot. Harvey Westland in Christchurch is probably one of the best experts on the cartridge in NZ & certainly one of the best "accuracy" gunsmiths we have. He has built a couple of 6BR's for me & my buddy with phenominal results. My custom Remington Model 7 with lightweight sporter barrel routinely shot 1/4moa at 600 yards off a bipod! In a week moment I sold mine but will have Harvey build me another one before he retires.

    This thread is nearly two years old

    I built a 6BRX haven't done any serious work with it yet, I'm still waiting for an XLR chassis for it, which isn't far away....hopefully...

    Yeah, but do you do Sako stocks?
