|6x45mm for AR-15
|This cartridge was introduced by Black Hills Ammunition Company in 2010 for use in AR15 / M16 rifles.
The cartridge is produced by taking a .223" caliber case and necking it out to accept larger 6mm or .243"
It is similar to the 6mm TCU, except it is not fire formed and may have a slightly different neck angle.
The AR-15/M16 rifle can easily be converted to the 6×45mm with a simple barrel swap with few or no further
modifications to the rifle.
The samples available below were produced by COR-BON using Lapua Match .223 cases.
