    I loaded some IMR 4350 in 10 pieces of FC small primer brass with the 150 gr Sierras. Pappabear's LMT gas gun shot those really well. 4 holes pretty much touching, and 1 left flier that stretched the group to MOA.

    I also loaded regular Hornady Brass with the 150s and IMR4350. One bergarra bolt gun shot them almost 3 MOA, the shot the 140 ELDs about a 1/2 MOA with the Lapua brass. It's amazing how finnicky barrels can be.

    True, but it sounds like you’re having success with the 6.5 ammo.
    That’s good.
    A true "Gun Guy" (or gal) should have familiarity and a modicum of proficiency with most all firearms platforms.

    Iíve been playing with 6mm Creedmoor with Lapua small primer brass. Itís as though I canít get it to not shoot with H4350 and Sierra 110s.

    The Lapua brass seems to have helped for sure. 140 gr ELDs are shooting the best, but naturally, we couldn't find more of them. We're back on the 147s. The 150 sierras have proven to be very hard to make happy. The gas gun shoots them good though.

    I don't know too much about 6mm. What are the +/-s compared to 6.5??

    Flatter trajectory, more wind resistance (until it runs out of steam), less recoil are the pros.

    The con, the glaring one, is about 1,000 rounds less barrel life.
