    Anyone playing with a 6mm Fat Rat?

    Does anyone have any experience with the 6mm Fat Rat? This could be a great way to spend some hard earned money on a new toy. Push a 105-107 match bullet very fast in an AR-15 platform.

    One guy in my shooting group has built one, case life is short, 3-5 loads per case (pockets get loose) and I remember he used a 5 series VV powder and swelled primer pockets the first or second loading using it.

    Pressure kills, with some cases over pressure will swell or blowout primer pockets.
    It generally happens with small/medium rimmed/semi rimmed cases with a large primer and small rimmed cases like 22 Hornet. It happens quickly when these parent cases are reformed to better performance rounds.

    A guy we shoot with at CIHPRS has one for his across the course "match rifle" and prone gun. It's a hammer, and he knows how to point it.

    I was squaded with him this weekend at Camp Atterbury. I was just curious if there was anyone else shooting this round.

    The 6mm creedmoor will do it as well. Peterson and Lapua has small primer brass to help with it. Even then, it's still hard on brass.
