Reloading The 6 X 45mm


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Hi:
This is my first post here, not new to reloading but this is the first wildcat cartridge for me. I built a AR15 upper with 20 " barrel to try this round out and so far have just been developing different loads with 70 to 90 grain bullets.

Have not tried any for accuracy just loading for velocity and looking for pressure signs at the same time. The powders I have used so far are Hodgdon Benchmark, Varget, H335, Alliant Reloader 10X, and WC844. Have some H322 and H4895 on order.

Would like to know if any of you have experience with this cartridge and what works best for you.

Thanks for your time

Joe

Joe,

What's the parent case for the 6x45? Perhaps it's known by a different name.

It is based off the .223 Remington case also it is known as the 6mm/223.

Thanks
Joe

Small Rifle Primers

NOTE: This may not belong here. However, it is an addendum to the preceding post.

RAMBLINGS ON SMALL RIFLE PRIMERS................................. .

I am of the opinion that the hottest, most reliable and consistant small rifle primer is the Remington 7 1/2 BR and it outperforms the Remington 6 1/2, Federal 205M as well as Winchester, CCI and RWS small rifle primers.

I mention this because the reloading data in my previous post includes the Federal 205M primer. Your mileage may vary.

jrumsey-

I have been loading the 6x45 for the last couple of years and have collected a fair amount of load data. Drop me an email [email protected] and I would be glad to send you what I have . I would be interested in any loads you have developed also.

The difference is, I use the Nosler 90 grain Ballistic Tip. I bought a bunch of these ballistic tips awhile back when I was still using a 243, now I like this load and it has served me well on White-Tail deer at 100 yards. Most shots I take are in deep woods area and either my 30-30 or this one goes with me. The heavier the brush, the more I go with the 30-30.


For longer shots, I use the 260 Remington and find it very close to the 270 Win, store bought regular ammunition.

The little round is easy to shoot. Having two Browning A-Bolt Hunter models, one was pretty worn and I had it re-barrelled to this round.
I kept with the 22” barrel length, but my speed is very close to what you are getting.

Not a wise idea to put your email address in a post. Opens you up to attacks by viruses, spambots, worms, rootkits, et cetera. Best way to relay an email address is via PM, and then to put an obvious letter in the address that doesn't belong there, such as a "k" where there would be a "c" in dot-com...

Good advice, but about 8 years too late?

I'm sure Robert's email addy hit the "skidsmore" years ago, especially if he was handing it out like free samples at a crack convention.

I guess that I can only scratch my head about endeavors that have gone before.
6MM/223??
What's so wrong about the .243 Winchester?

Almost twice the case capacity.

The 6/223, 6x45 or 6 TC/U is a mild cartridge that works well from an AR or a Thompson Center Contender. Can't say that about a 243 Win.

Works pretty well from my Ruger M77 MkII V/T, also!

What's so wrong about the .243 Winchester?
You can put a 6x45 or 6x47 in a Contender.

You can't put a .243 Win in a Contender.

There are a whole bunch of wildcats on the .222 / .222 Magnum / .223 Rem case for the same reason.

You can also use the 6X45 in an AR15 with a simple barrel swap for deer hunting a .243 requires an AR10 platform.

i also had an ar15 in 6x45 but thought that bullets heavier then 70grn took up to much powder space and some ended up with the ogive seated below the mouth of the case. it shot real well with sierra 60grn hollow points and H335. speer 70grn tnt bullets also shot well.

I've had a super nice custom 6x45 for 32 years, and its my all time favorite varmint rifle and I have shot a lot of Impala, Kudu, Springbok on culls over the years and a number of deer and pronghorns with it..My big game load has been H-322 and H335 for 2900 FPS in my 18" barrel with 75 gr. GSC and the old 75 gr. Barnes X bullets (discontinued btw) but I have a small supply of them, but prefer the GSCs anyway..All loads have been chronographed..You should start at 24 grs of each and work up a few grs. to your rifles maximum..I never shoot big game over a couple of hundred yards max, and 99% have been in the 100 to 150 yard range. For varmints I use the same powder with with little more powder for the 60 gr. Sierra HP. I have tried most powders and IMR-4198 was OK, but I'll stay with H322 and H335 for now.

Shooting a 6mm TC/U in a contender with a 15" MGM bbl.
THIS LOAD IS USING "OLD" 2015BR, WORK YOU LOADS UP CAREFULLY.
I'm getting great results from 80gr sp over 24gr of 2015BR.
6x45 is a 6mm TC/U without the 40' shoulder, loads are very close and I use the starting loads for either from my manuals as a start.
Wildcatting in a semi is a different cat than a bolt or single shot. Do your research and be careful. I do remember an article in Shotgun News, Handloader, or ? about the same setup, the author was pleased.
Good luck.
