    The 6mm American is very similar to the 240 Coyote #2 cooked up by Harold Broughton back in the '80's.
    That case's capacity is very close to a 6BR, except it is smaller in OD and longer.

    I put a...

    Sean,

    I went thru some of my old stuff from back in the mid '90's and found a FL die that I made and it is marked HC 30 FL. I think this die is for your chamber, I never did chamber a barrel for...

    Old coot

    The rifle you have there is an NBRSA Hunter class rifle. That is what the HC stands for, at least that is what it was originally built for.

    RC

    The 222 case may not go in because the chamber has a tight neck, maybe .244 to .246.

    If your test case was not neck turned, that maybe the interference preventing closing the bolt.

    FWIW ...

    Wilbur,

    The action has no ejection port.
    That said, any other extractor would work, but for some reason way back then the shell holder was in vogue. I know of a large Weber UNL action that was...

    Mike,

    Have you seen the 224 Valkyrie that Federal has come out with for the "Black rifle" guys. If the brass is good, it may have some possibilities for BR w/ a 6mm neck, and shortened up a bit....

    Harvey Millers MCR series was a case somewhere in between a 219 Daonaldson Wasp and Harold Broughton's 240 Coyote #2 with either a 22 or 6mm neck.

    Both based on a 30-30 case, but could also be...

    To properly score for a "10" value hit you need a special scoring gage. As...

    I would say the way your rifle is configured, it would be more appropiate for F-class rimfire competition than Benchrest.

    Ian.

    I think the one third from the left is a Hasecuster, less a barrel block, with a Stolle Polar action.

    The reason I think this, is the rest is a dead ringer for the Hasecuster I shoot.

    Jackie,

    I pretty sure the stock is a Lee Six "Hall pattern". I used several of them back in the early '90's when Lee was still in business.
