    Hi Guys.

    I am looking for some info on reloading for 6x45?

    Any info would help.

    Do you still get a round nose 100 or 105gr bullet?

    What powder and load, Sonchem please.

    I will be looking at about 2350fps with a 100gr.

    The action is a Zastava mini with a. Truvello barrel.

    Thanks

    Seems this round has been done in some custom AR's. Sounds like an intriguing caliber. This is what I found out though. The 6X45 is not the round to shoot the larger bullets. The 105's need a 9 or 8 twist and be pushed closer to 2900 to 3000 FPS to go out longer ranges. It does well with the 65gr and 70gr if want to shoot heaver bullets then I would use the 243 with the 95's. The 6X45 is a 300 yard round and if you want to go longer then I just move up to the 243 Win, the 243 WSSM, or the 6mm Rem. This is from a quick internet search and read. If it is reality and you do want to go heavier, I would opt for the 6mm remington. Plus brass for the 6x45 might be a pain in the ass to find.

    Love the velocity, but pressure is too high for long brass life. Also had to seat bullet out further. Low SD and good accuracy.

    Hi 35Bore.

    Thanks for the info.

    Here in Sa we use it more for a bushveld caliber, up to 150yrds.
    We used to get commersial amo in 100gr (actually it was only availible in 100gr)but it is getting very scares.

    Brass is not a huge problem, i do have 150 emptys stamped 6x45 and 223 is easilly converted.

    The other problem is normal 100gr spitzers is about 2mm to long for the magazine, round nose works perfect.

    Hi Plongeur.

    Thanks, Ken is in Polokwane if i am not mistaken. Do you perhaps know what speeds you are getting with that load. S335 wil suit me since it seems that is the preferred propelant for my other caliber in want to load (8x60s).

    Have you tried him for brass as well? I read somewhere that he does brass as well.

    Thanks again

    I didnt load the 105's from stewards yet But with 100gr hornady RN I got around 2270 with 22,5 gr S335 .I was told to go 0,5 gr lower with the stewards since the bullet casing is thicker an hence the pressure will be higher.And yes he is in Pietersburg

    Thanks I am in Polokwane as well. I used to shoot the hornady,s but cant seem to find it. Have been using New Generation Arms, loaded with 100gr hornady sp's at 2375fps lately but are not really happy with them. I do have a couple of rounds with Ken's 100gr loaded but they are loaded a bit to fast for me, but the results is a lot better than the NGA.
