6mm GT, Alpha Brass coming soon this looks very interesting. I have an extra 6mm tube sitting here. George says he has 1900 rounds through his and just let a guy barrow it to shoot a match and won with it.

It is a effort between George Gardner and Tom Jacobs. It is .100 longer than a Dasher to the shoulder. It's .050 longer neck. The shoulder is 35 degrees for better feeding. Requires no magazine filler. It feeds from any magazine that will feed a 6.5 Creedmoor or .308. With 34-35.5 gr of Varget for 3020 to 3080 FPS with 103-105gr bullets. 115gr bullets @ 3000FPS. George says accuracy is scary. Brass will be available in the fall. Dies are available from GAP now. So it is longer over all than the Dasher and shorter than the 6mmX47.

You can read George's exact words on his FB post.

Not the picture I saw, it was a tiger not a cat, provided my memory is correct.

That would’ve been the LAST name I would’ve used.

I think George and Tom are pretty secure with their sexuality. Personally I think it is pretty funny and good marketing. Homophobes I could see having a problem, they are afraid they may turn gay! smile

I guess only you can determine that. I think George and Tom think so.
