243 LBC

Postby dantheman » Thu Feb 14, 2019 6:13 pm

Has anyone played with any of the 6mm Wildcats in an AR15 platform?

I've got a 243 LBC barrel on order and was wondering if anybody has any experience with the 6mm cats.

I ordered the barrel from Columbia River Arms formally Black Hole Weaponry.


They had a 20% off sale during the SHOT Show that I took advantage of. This will also be my first upper build.

I finally worked out a load that was both accurate enough for me and suitable for whitetail.

90 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip over 28.6 grains of IMR 8208 XBR, CCI BR4. 2900 fps.

The group measures .630 inches at 100 yds.

This load pretty much duplicates a 250 Savage with slightly better sectional density being a .243 caliber.
