I have been looking at the Savage 12 LRPV in 6mmBR
vs. putting together a 6.5 Creedmoor.

One of my friends has one, he doesn't reload...and gives me the empties...so cases shouldn't be too much of a problem.

My main interest is varmints at 500yds+.

Thoughts?

False economy, BTDT, got the T-shirt!

Brass, the availability thereof is a non issue.......... plus the brass fired by your friend is useless to you.

PROPERLY set up you can buy 50 6BR cases and fire them 50 times. That's 2500 firings for a cost of less than 25 bucks for cases.... and they'll SHOOT properly.

My opinion is to get the 6BR in an 8" twist and send off five cases and 75bucks to The Brothers Harrell out in Salem Virginnee, get'cherself a proper sizing die.

Go shoot stuff.
