I finally got a chance to try out some 105 and 120 grain CBB’s. Using my Savage 6.8, it shot both of the 105 and 120’s better than anything else that I’ve tried. I think I will be using the 105’s when it’s time to hit the woods.

I then tried both rounds with my Mini 14 that I just acquired. I’m sticking with the iron sights on this gun, so shooting at 100yds was a little tough with my eyes. So I kept it to 50 as I plan on using it for a brush gun anyway. It seemed to like the 120’s a bit better. I’m guessing because it has a faster twist. Either way, I couldn’t be happier with how it shoots and how well the CBB’s perform.

Thank you Robert and David for coming together and putting out some absolutely outstanding ammunition for those of us that don’t have the capabilities of reloading.

I was pleasantly surprised at how well the Mini performed today. I think if I put a scope on it, it would shoot almost as good at the longer ranges as the Savage. But each gun will have a different purpose, so the Mini will stay as it is for now.

Awesome shooting!! Was this the pre-loaded CBB or was this hand load? Either way, I am extremely happy to see these results. Now I feel good about buying the CBBs for reloading.

Thanks for the 120 grain Mini 6.8 showing there!

A light scope can do wonders for a mini 6.8. Get the full use out of 6.8 with one!

I’m sure it will, but I bought the Mini to compliment my Savage that has a scope on it when hunting whitetails. The Mini is going to have a purpose as a brush gun on the ground while doing drives and the Savage will be used when hunting from a stand. If I didn’t build the Savage, I would have no problem at all putting a scope in n it and making it my primary weapon.

It's also good that the information on the factory load states the case , powder and charge . The S&B cases they use has more room than most other cases so if someone is trying to duplicate they should back off a grain .

I'm thinking on getting a 1-6 power scope for the Mini-6.8. The old vortex viper has been getting a heck of a beating being used as the brush rifle itself. I'm more use to a classic "Rifley" profile for shooting and muscle memory. The AR profile took some time to get use to. I like irons myself, every gun I have has iron sights even with scopes, I learned never trust a scope even after two leopolds went bad on me with just them being in storage. Yank off the scope check the iron zero and hunt saved.
