FF loads in the 6 BRA are crazy accurate. 100 - 600 yards is as far out as I've taken them though but I would bet they are good farther out as well just more come up. If I were shooting local mid range matches I'd be fireforming there.

Cool!

One thing you might want to consider is a fireform barrel. The round count adds up pretty quick!

Yes...good idea.  I bought a shot out 6.5mm barrel for my 6.5 x55 BJAI and had the barrel cut to 20" and chambered to the same headspace as my 'good' barrel.  He chambered all my barrels for a 0.003-4" crush fit at the neck shoulder junction so I did not have to hard jam bullets or false shoulder the neck.  I used a FF barrel for the first 300 cases then I realized that FF loads shot almost as good as the formed cases so I shot my FF brass in local monthly matches.  I have many cleans shot while shooting FF loads so you may find that in the 6 BRA too.  But, I would still get a FF barrel spun up so you can get started with proper load development on fired cases then, if you find the same as I did ( the match loads were only slightly off from the FF loads ) , you can shoot a slight variation of that load to FF cases while shooting small/'fun' matches.

Forgot to add the only reason he sold it was so he could build more rifles on newer platforms to test so he could give valid opinions on other equipment.

Bolt Action Rifles / New to me!

Built and successfully campaigned by the same smith who built my 6 BRA Borden.

This one's a Kelbly Stolle Panda with a Bix & Andy trigger. It's in an original Rutland Laminate LRB stock that's been dipped in a carbon fiber pattern.

Came with 4 barrels:

6 BRA 8 twist
6 BRA 7.5 twist
7-08 AI 8 twist Brux
7-08 AI 8 twist Broughton

Waiting on dies for the 7-08 so I can FF brass.
Might FF some brass for the BRA barrels and work up a Vapor Trail load but I'm kind of more interested in getting the 7-09 AI up and running for a bad conditions / heavy gun.

I plan on shooting 4-6 IBS 600 yard matches in MN late summer after the Deep Creek season is done then shooting the IBS 600 yard Nationals in MN in October.
