    98's 6mm ARC

    I only dimpled the first 2. After I realized that I wouldn’t stick a case and backed off on the lube, the next 72 sized without any dimples. Just a spray of One Shot and begin.

    Thank you! I checked the necks. Th drawing shows .274 I finished up some dummy rounds to check over and chamber. My necks are at .270. The rounds chamber without any assistance and are not scratched up. ps, I like how you warn of potential issues and not say after “oh yeah, that happened to me too” I really do enjoy this forum

    Gun is ready to fire 6.5 Grendel to 6mm ARC. Cases form very easily. Bumping the shoulder back adds a small dimple. I am sure this will fire-form right out. On to load some up.

    I got everything to build my gun but........no 6mm ARC cartridges! I do have some 6.5 Grendel brass that I am going to resize to 6mm ARC. I checked the drawings and the grendel is slightly longer at the shoulder so the cases wont need to be fire-formed. I will report back as to how it goes.

    I saw on the Brownells website that the Faxon 6mm ARC barrels are now in stock. Mine should ship in the coming days. i missed the boat on ammo. No brass or ammo to be found anywhere.
  7. I paid $1100 for mine when new. $750 is fair price.
  8. I bought mine around 2006-2007. Mine is serial number 10,xxx That year there was a 6 month wait to get one
  9. Welcome from Middle Tennessee. I have the same gun. It is a Gen1 DPMS smooth or slick side target rifle. Trigger sucks but the gun shoots great.
  10. I want to order some of these.

    Hornady posted the 6mm ARC data. Sorry if it has been updated but I missed it.
