    After a year off all things work related I am now back smithing full time, anyone wants a 6x45 barrel job give me a yell.
    Can also offer a dealer to dealer postal service to those out of the Waikato region.

    Thought I’d add this to the thread @Wingman if that’s ok? May be useful data for someone.

    Found a good load for my 6x45 today. 18” barrel 1-10 twist.

    70gr Ballistic Tip
    BM8208
    Winchester case
    RWS primer.

    I’ve settled on 26.3gr, as a max useable to keep case life ok. No need to push it, velocity is good. Book max is 27gr, and very very hot in my rifle. At 26.8gr I was getting 2950fps but stiff extraction and very flat primers.

    A little more info for those interested in the 6x45.

    I cut the base off a few different 6mm projectiles, and melted the lead out in order to measure jacket thickness. I also
    Measured the hollow point left, as it will also indicate the rate of expansion on impact.

    Sierra 100gr Pro Hunter: 0.028” jacket 0.065” hollow point
    Rem 100gr Core Lokt: 0.026” jacket 0.070” hollow point
    Hornady 87gr SP: 0.019” jacket 0.095” hollow point
    Sierra 85gr SPT Varminter: 0.019” jacket 0.065” hollow point
    Sierra 85gr HPBT G.K. 0.019” jacket 0.050” hollow point
    Speer 80gr SP: 0.020” jacket 0.100 hollow point

    I’d be interested to see the figures for a few others (that I don’t have)
    Sierra 70gr Match King
    Sierra 70gr HP Varminter

    Thats interesting as I use 8208XBR exclusively in my 6.5TCU Rifle, so not quite a 6x45 but I use 26gns of 8208 and 123 ELD-Ms or SSTs or lately 130gn RDFs
    Velocity is 2550 and thing shoots real good out to about 700m, past that it loses its lunch a bit.
    Might try a 6x45 next time or 6TCU if I can find a reamer maybe
