6.5 BRM

Well, I finnally got around to shooting my 6.5 BRM barrel I got for my encore., it shot 20" to the left at 50 yds. After not getting any response back from EABCO, I bought a pair of Burris rings with a set of posi-align inserts. I put the 20 + - in and and my left shooting 6.5 was dead center. What a easy fix. I believe the barrel is drilled off center. What a fun wildcat. It really likes H-380 and RL-15.

Re: 6.5 BRM

Where are you getting loading data on that? I'm curious as I have a 6mm BRM and I'm still looking for data. I have lots of H-380 and that would be great to use that in mine.

Re: 6.5 BRM

I like my 6.5 BRM. I'm using their EAB factory ammo and it's shooting dead on at 100 yards with the mounts I purchased from EAB.. I do have all the stuff to reload it too when I want too.. I'm going to try it on some coyotes during the mosquito creek hunt...that's if a coyote shows him or herself.. I'm using a Muller APV scope. So impressed on how that Muller scope works at night too!!!! Crystal clear with a scope light on the scope..

Re: 6.5 BRM

Many of the Western states people do use the 243 for coyotes. If many use the .243 why not the .264? Yep I love my 6.5 BRM!!!

Re: 6.5 BRM

Well, I got out and shot my 6mmBRM and couldn't believe the accuracy. Reloading wasn't fun but it's a learning curve. I have a ton of 30-30 cases but destroyed a bunch in the process. Now I'm ready to order the 6.5 barrel and add that to my collection. This time, I'll order the barrel with dies AND brass to go with the gun.

Re: 6.5 BRM

Going to use the 6.5 BRM for the up coming deer season on Monday. Still using factory ammo since it shoots so well.
