.223 will go bang safely, but will be terribly inaccurate.

6x45 in a .223 gun won't close battery. Pill will jam at the throat.

100% of my 6x45 brass is nickel to mitigate oops afield.


SINCE THAT TIME...

I did witness a similar problem...

A good friend and very competent GunSmith/FFL DID ACTUALLY chamber and fire a .300 Blackout round in a 6x45 barrel... same scenario would be possible if the gun was a .223

How could this possibly happen???

The bullet set back into the cartridge case as the BCG closed battery. I assume insufficient crimp on the round.

No one got hurt and believe it or not... the .308 bullet DID leave the .243 barrel... however that barrel was irreparably damaged.

Lesson learned by me...

Check, crosscheck and recheck everything... every single time.

If you are ever in doubt... STOP!!!

---------------------------------

OR... if you do some of the really really weird monster stuff I do... wrap the gun in a moving blanket, ratchet strap it to an oak tree/bench and get yourself a long string. (i.e. back when I was learning to play with 730 gr. .458 bullets I did just this).

Data straight from the Accurate website.

3,460 FPS with a Nosler 55 SP FB (the ones I was selling for a dime each).

SDs suck and the BCs also... but to 200-250 yards... 3,500+/- makes for a nasty little RPG.

How much lead on a running coyote?

NONE

Changed the handguard and dropped about another 6 ounces...

Changed the scope and lost a pound.
