Sure am enjoying shooting this HV in 6mm no-neck-turn. Case prep consists of running the new case over a 6mm expander mandrel, loading and shooting. It gives up nothing to the tight neck 6ppc.

Lately, I have been experimenting with many different powders, Hodgdon's Benchmark, H322, H4198, Tubal 3000, Tubal 2000, Norma 200, 8208 etc., and have concluded this thing will shoot with just about anything. It produces the same velocities as the 6ppc and does so with two grains less powder. If you are into ultra high velocities, H4198 is still king. With H4198 you can easily get 3400 fps with 68 grain bullets.

An early morning session in the tunnel convinced me that I should join Huckeba, Tucker, and Conry at the Midland Shooters range today for a little informal match. It's a beautiful day here in West Texas. I'll let you know how it went.

Later,
