Above = 10 Shot Slow Prone Testing Group
With 6mmAR Turbo 40° Improved

The target above was shot slow prone at 100 yards while doing some basic load work ups for 600 yards.  Since this was initiaI load testing, I decided to start with a loading down around 2800 fps, so the powder measure was set to throw around 28.5 gr of H4895 and the cases were loaded with Beger 105 gr VLD bullets .010" in the lands.  The cases were previously fire formed and re-sized and primed with CCI BR-4 primers.  This was shot with a scope in slow prone with a sling and the target is the slow prone target.


Below
= Additional 10 Shot Slow Prone Testing Group
With 6mmAR Turbo 40° Improved @ 100 Yards - Shot
Slow Prone With Sling




The above 10 shot slow prone target was shot with the same load and fire formed brsss as the prior target above (
28.5 gr of H4895  with Beger 105 gr VLD bullets .010" in the lands and a BR-4 primer).

Warning on Loads and Loading:  The listed loads above and below were safe and workable in the rifles that were tested, but that does not guarantee they will be appropriate for your rifle or upper.  It is your responsibility to work up your own loads in a safe manner.  We recommend you reduce all loads by 1.5 to 2 grains of powder and work up from there with your own rifle.  We make no representation that any of the listed loadings will be appropriate or safe for your rifle or upper.

Load Testing and Load Data:


No Brainer Loading:  If you are looking for an easy load to get going with, try 28 - 28.5 gr of H4895 with a BR-4 primer with whatever bullet you have (between 80-108 gr) and you should be up and shooting very accurately right away.

For Fire Forming Try:

27.5 H4895
28 gr. RL15 or Varget or N140 or N540
26 gr. IMR 8208XBR

Some of the fire forming loads are very very accurate and do not dismiss them for shooting across the course at 200 yards or in short course matches.

NOTE:  The Turbo 40 cartridge has the capacity to run naked (i.e. non-moly) 105-108 gr. bullets up in the 2900 fps range with powders like RL15, VV N540 and Varget.  Varget is a little bulky and the higher loadings will be compressed.
