My possible source came to nothing.

Apparently the current fashion is the BRA. Some rave reports but we know that often means nothing. I can't imagine it's gonna be significantly better than a Dasher or BRX.

What about the 6mm Creedmoor ? it seems to be getting good press in the States .

I use the 6 BRA for 300-600 yard f-class matches with 105 grain bullets. I have been shooting this caliber for 3 years now, and had 2600 rounds on the first barrel and have about 2200 on my second barrel. Shot a match yesterday at 600 yards, 80 shots for record, with 64 of those shots inside the 3 inch X ring. Obviously the barrel is not shot out yet. This is using 31.46 grains of 2208. MV of 2980. To get that kind of muzzle velocity out of a dasher or brx you will be loading over 33 grains of 2208. Brass life is much improved over either a brx or dasher, and throat wear is less due to less heat. I have a coyote rifle built with the same reamer that will get used for the first time this fall. Cheers

I'm keener on the BRX as its 30 deg shoulder so feeds better than the BRA or Dasher. Only downside is shorter neck, but most guys shooting the BRA and Dasher dont have problem with short neck.

Looked at 6 creedmoor, and even have the dies but its another 6-7 grains powder for extra 100-150 fps and looks like barrel life is <1500 rounds.

Even the BRX/Dasher appears to have quite a bit less barrel life than standard BR, but not that bad. Could try 6 creedmoor with H1000 and load it down to extend barrel life but think BRX is better option all round form me as I have BR dies.
