Re: 6.5x284 reloading questions

I shoot the hybrid 100V in my 6.5, It has a 24 inch barrel, savage 116 stock rifle. It holds 1/2 MOA out to 600 yards. I get 2844 FPS on 49.5 grains, .100 from the lans. 140 grn berger. Also one thing beware the 100V Is not temp stable. Its good for about 20 degree range as so it seem to me. I developed my load in the winter/into the spring during the cool 40 to 50 degree days. Shot during the summer and I had stiff bolt lift and about 100fps change in volicity with case marking. But it does work for the temps I developed it in and for hunting season.
