    6x62 Feres dimensions

    Does any one know the dimensions of this cartridge? Every place I looked was in German. A couple of my vz24's are getting home sick for cartridges on their side of the pond! Thanks a ton if you can help me out.

    The 6x62 case is 61.46mm in length and accepts 6mm (.243") bullets.

    Thanks for that lead but I really would like to know the exact cartridge dimensions. I am starting to back off because I wanted it to use the slow surplus powders I have and I think this cartridge is too much of a good thing! Needs a bigger outlet hole.

    Head diameter of .476, could be made from '06, 270 or 280 brass. Did not convert any other dimensions, but isn't '06 63mm length?
