Got in MDT mags per Stick's advice. They seem really nice for this 6x45 project. Components coming together:

ARC Nucleus 2 lefthand 223 bolt face
McMillan Classic with inlet for Hawkins Hunter bottom metal
Hawk Hill #2 7.5 twist, chopped at 17" and threaded
Timney HIT trigger

Pic shows 95 Berger Classic seated to base of neck. Pic is right at 2.49 OAL. If they fly, will shoot critters with them. If not, 90 and 103 ELD, or 95 VLD, or perhaps heavier will get tried. Throat should allow those to work fine is the goal.

Cheap rig to shoot of course. Powders on shelf include H335, W748, RL15, Varget. Needed 6mm to be legal in CO.

All I shoot are 105's. On both MDT's and AccurateMag's,I remove material up front for greater COAL.

BabiestMontucky 270 in front seat now,while crummy warms up,as a guy could bump a Bear any time...............

Will look for 105s as I'd like to get throat right for the heavies. Looks like a simple rat tail file in front of mag to allow more OAL. Good luck on bruins.

I only needed to file my accurate mags, the MDTs were ok.

Stick a couple empties in the mag to hold the follower down and either file or Dremel what you need.

That will be a sweet little rig

Installed Timney HIT on here today. Action does not seem to suck. Waiting on McMillan and hawk hill now.

2.5-3 months on a McMillan it seems. Originally had it setup for Stiller then changed to Nucleus action. Fits good enough despite me switching gears on the boys at McMillan. Just waiting on Hawk Hill now.

Hawk Hill says 6mm are up now. So should be in work shortly. May cut it at 18" as with the TBAC UL7 I want the balance point just in front of the mag well.

fuckall i debated for a while on a 6br vs 6x45

sound off on how she shoots and velocity. plenty happy with 223 and heavies but the lower blast would be nice
