    First of all, welcome to OSA!
    Interesting caliber. I had to look up the ballistics and history. I'm a big 6mm fan.
    Unfortunately, I can't answer your question.

    Thank you. I’m interested to see how this old Mauser custom turns out.

    I haven’t been able to find a clear answer if they are or not. The twist of this rifle is unknown at this point I’m gonna start their and figure the twist and see what grain of bullet I can push. I’ve tracked down some 6mm rem br brass but it’s on gunbroker and I’m impatient. I’m ready to get this rifle back where it was.

    Cleaning rod and a piece of tape and count the revolutions till the end and measure the barrel. That’s how I was taught to figure unknown twist.

    I've got quite a bit of experience with 7mmBR but not the 6. There's slight variations between Remington, Norma, Lapua brass so do some research on that aspect. Do you know which brass it was chambered for specifically? Spend some time at http://www.6mmbr.com if you haven't already, it will answer a lot of questions.

    I tried to google this and see what I could find for you, but there are so many 6mm calibers that are very close, it gets confusing very quickly. This article might have something useful for you...
