Re: 6.5-284 Vs .284 WIN for long range??
I worked up a load; 50.3 grains of H4831SC, Federal 210 M primers, and utilizing the 142 grain SMK in the lands, that chorno'd @ 2902 fps. The 1st two rounds went hole in hole, and then kick left .2". So far, at 400 through 700 yards, the round works phenominally well. Because of this, I am entertaining the thought of utilizing the SMk’s for the pig hunt. BTW, the receiver is a Rem 700 Long Action; the barrel is 26" long. #6 heavy varmint, 1:8 twist by Mike Rock.
