6BR Repeater Calling Rifle

Scott S., aka “Sunbuilder” in our Forum, recently completed an interesting project gun. This is a lightweight, compact “calling rifle” chambered in 6mmBR. The gun features a Stiller Predator Repeater action with Lilja 1:12″ twist, #4 contour barrel. To get the short, fat 6BR rounds to feed from the magazine, Scott did the Mike Bryant Mag Conversion. Scott reports the rifle now “feeds great.” This simple conversion involves blocking the rear of the magazine and shortening the follower.

Scott’s 6BR calling rifle wears a Zeiss Conquest 3.5-10×44 scope on top. This is a nice, bright optic with a sensible magnification range for game that is normally on the move. The rifle was built by Neil Jones in Saegertown, Pennsylvania. Along with his 6BR Lilja barrel, Scott has a second barrel chambered in 6.5×47 Lapua Improved, and Scott is “thinking about doing a 20 VarTarg barrel too.” That would give him a range of three calibers, with projectiles ranging from 30 grains to 130+ grains.
