    Any other load data you feel like putting in the googledrive would be much appreciated, I'm sure.

    I didn't put it there, just found it.
    Max loads in the 6x45 are midrange in the 6 mongoose as the mongoose has a little more capacity.
    So the 6x45 is a good place to start as well as the other 6 mongoose data I have.

    The 6x45 is just a 223/5.56 case necked up to 6 mm/243, really simple 1 pass through the size die to form.

    The mongoose has to be formed from 5.56/223 and have shoulder setback, 40 degree shoulder and trimmed.
    If in cases other than lc, ( lapua for sure) necks have to be turned, then brass fireformed, so it is more work on the case than 6x45.

    But that said, I have a fair enough supply of fire formed brass to start working with in the mongoose.
    I'd like to work up a 55,75,87,105 gr bullet load it likes.
    The 105's won't fit in a ar mag though. Single feed or bolt gun. I haven't tried them yet to see if the controlled round feed bolt gun will play well with them.

    Pretty standard powders for it though,(mongoose)
    Benchmark, h-335, to cfe 223, blc-2 and varget speed wise.

    I forgot I posted this before..

    Speaking of 6x45 AR's, here's one I've not shot in many years. Has an 18" RLG barrel from the no longer in business AR15Barrels.com.



    Winchester brass, Hornady 65gr. V-Max, 26.0 grs. AA2230. Good enough for coyote...
