Default Any 6mm TCU afficienados here?

I have a 6mm TCU in a rifle setup and am wondering about some bullet and load data.

I would like something stronger than a varmint bullet in the 75 grain range, but, if not...

Load data for an 80 gn bullet will help.

Right now, I am at 27 gns of H4895 with an 80 gn bullet and getting about 3025 fps, which is promising.

Anyway, any info will help.

Thanks

Steven I have never shot mine ovr a chronograph but 55 grain Sierras are promising with 26 grains of VN 133.

Thanks Michael.

Are you shooting a pistol?

This is a dymamite little round in my rifle.

I am trying to get a little less frangible bullets to work for coyotes and perhaps even deer at close range.

Default Nice....

Mine is not that pretty. It's on a Sako, but the stock leaves a little to be desired. I bought the action and couldn't find a stock at the time, so I carved this one out of half a blank that was used for another gun. I'd change it out, but it just shoots too nice to mess with.






It doesn't even look that good now, with all of the camo tape on it.

Default 6 Ugalde

Steven,

I had a rifle built in the early 80's by Wes Ugalde of Fallon, Nevada. I bleieve he desogned the cartridge. At that time the only viable bullet for varmints was a 60 grain Sierra. It would shoot quarter minute groups all day with 27-28 grains of 748 which filled the case.

I've since rebarreled the rifle because I've become a .20 nut, but used to love the rifle out to about 300 yards. I reall would consider the 55 Nosler because it is so much more frangible. You won't see the velocity with 748 that you would with some of the other powders, but I've always strived for accuracy above velocity. Good luck.

Bruce

Default Will those bullets be ok on fur?

Bruce,

TCU I think stands for Thompson Center Ugalde. You are probably right.

Do you think those bullets preserve the hides of coyotes? I don't want to blow big holes in them, if I can help it.

Thanks

I though it was Thunder Cat Ultra. Either way a 223AI with a 6mm bullet in it would be a supper neat round.

The 60 grainers did not blow up on prairie dogs or ground squirrels and should work well on coyotes. The Nosler 55's might be okay because the velocity might be down a bit and they shouldn't blow up.
