With the introduction of fully formed 6mm Dasher brass from Bullets.com and the availability of Hydo forming dies from Whidden and Hornady, the 6mm Dasher seems to have caught the attention of a couple of Wildcat developers because of a potential for easier brass formation of cartridges such as 270 AR, 7mm VAR and 30 Sabercat
The 6mm Dasher by itself is a near 243 Win performer, making it a versatile hunting target and varmint cartridge
To the more experienced Wildcatters, what are the down sides of the dasher in an AR15 and where might I find someone who makes AR 15 barrels and bolts?
bolt thrust, reliable feeding, mag length reloads in an AR15 style rifle
all this can be overcome, but is not ideal
http://ar15performance.com/inc/sdetail/14611/20800 (if you want a single one try contacting Bruce) --- the mag length and feeding issues are still there to tackle-----as I said, they can all be overcome , but is it worth it to you?
40 degree shoulder on a small neck and big case is not optimal. That is why I went with the BRX instead of the dasher in 09 when I started making the big bolts.
With Oly closing I think Tromix will be the only company that can make the big bolts.
It would benefit consumers and the wildcat industry alike to standardize on a single enhanced bolt/extension design for all 'cats based on the .308 Win case head size.
Constructor, would you be open to working with other 'cat suppliers like MDWS to have your 750 design be that standard?
