Using easy to find 223 Remington cases, the 6x45mm is easily reformed by necking up the case to 6mm. No other changes are needed. It is a modern improvement on cartridges like the 30-30 or the 35 Remington. It uses less powder than the old timers and cheaper, 6mm bullets – all in a more compact package with less recoil.

Included are 55, 65, 70, 75 grain varmint loads. 85 and 90 grain whitetail loads. 65, 68 and 70 grain target loads. But it’s more than reloading recipes! Learn how to easily convert the 223 Lee Quick Trim die to work with the 6x45mm case. Make you own 6x45mm OAL gauge for use with the Hornady Lock N Load system. Use once fired military brass to reduce your reloading costs. Use the Lee Universal Case Expanding Die to improve your flat base bullet loads. Lessons learned on overpressure loads. Reloading dies and equipment. More.


The 300 Ham’r in Canada

If you are not familiar with the 300 Ham’r, it uses a 308 bullet, loaded in a modified 223 Remington case.
