Anyone have a stubby 6mm rifle? I'm building a Dasher so I can win Jason's match next year. I was thinking about adding a shorty to the collection while I'm at it. Something under 20" would be an awesome rifle for the popup blind.

You may have a feeding problem with the 6 Dasher or 6br. The 6 Creedmoor will feed more reliable than them.

In a bolt action?

I am having S&S precision build me a 18 inch 6.5 Creedmoor I saw a couple of theirs and they looked really good and feed well.They had them going 2800 feet per second with a hundred and thirty grain bullet.They also had good success with the 6 millimeter Creedmoor.

I saw a couple of their rifles at Jason's last match. They build very nice rifles.

My buddy Paul is a PRS shooter. He has several Dashers built on Surgeon actions and he hasn't had any problems at all. I'll be building my long range rig on the new Curtis Axion. Hopefully it'll feed without any issues.

They're out of my price range too. The new Curtis actions are half the price. I'll keep y'all posted.

If I shoot like I did last time, you can bring your Red Ryder and kick my arse with it.

I've yet to hear anyone using this and say a br had troubles feeding. https://primalrights.com/equipment/6br-aics-conversion

redmist is right though, it is a fairly common problem.

I'm on my third dasher barrel and second brx (all in a single shot custom action), they are awesome but don't do well in a short barrel. The 6 Creedmoor or 6SLR would be my two choices in a short 6.

What kind of round count are you getting from your Dasher barrels?
