Bolt Action Rifles / Re: 6 mm dasher

2880 - 2890 is a pretty good slow 6mm load.

People will argue but in a 6 BR it's getting close to the top end. In a BRA it's a low node and in a Dasher should be very mild.

Dave im not going to step on it too hard this first firing.. but i do want it in the 2800's to fire form.. if this powder wont get me there i might as well move on.. however i still have case capacity left.. so im gonna give it a bump up.. i get done you may not be grinning... lol

I agree it's not going to hurt to step up but if that powder is going to run slow be careful not to step up enough to damage the brass.

Those are the common sizes but there are .271, .269 and they go even smaller on your bottom end.

I'd turn .001 off them

Bob with some guidance from jerry what your saying is spot on.. i understand that their is 3 different neck sizes in reamers.. .268, .270 and .272.  The reamer used in my barrel has a .270 neck.. a fired case in mine without turning is .269 a loaded case before measures .268.. thats pretty tight in there..

I’ve tried RL 19 several times with 140 grain bullets.  For whatever reason I can’t seem to come up with a load that shoots consistently.  Perhaps you’ll do better with a heavier bullet. Let us know how it works out.

Hunting / Re: My Only Creedmoor Hunt.

Biggest misconception is when I hear, "what did it score?" Hunting is not a competition. Scores Are used to determine outcomes of competitions. I've saw the obsession of deer hunting scores ruin great friendships. Surely I like to shoot big deer but dont set my heart on getting the biggest.

Amen.  Will admit I find a small amount of pleasure when a quality buck I have committed a lot of time chasing, "whoops my a**."  Gives me inspiration and motivation for the next season.

That is slow however I'd resist the urge to step on it until the barrel is settled and the brass is fireformed.

With a grin I'll also add these are the results we sometimes get when we use different components to get different results LOL

With the Norma brass in a Lapua chamber I'm not surprised your getting some random pressure signs. Could be humidity as well, keep a clean chamber mop handy and give the chamber a quick swab every so often. Especially when you start, especially after cleaning.

Bob's comment about the trimming leaving the thicker lower neck seem plausible also.

Dasher is a unique cartridge.  There seems to be a wide variety of reamers that are used that provide options for free bore as well as neck OD.  PT&G is a very common reamer in use but it seems to have been designed around Lapua brass.  So if you change brass, you may have to trim it to have it work reliably.  Alpha brass got a bad rap for awhile for being too thick and sticking when opening the bolt.  Dasher seems to still be a bit of a wild cat.
