Re: 6.5x284 shooters

I'm new to the board. I found the sierra 142 with about 50.5gr of R-22 works pretty well shot a .277 5 shot group. Tried the 140 but not as good. Mine was put together by Bryant also and will be using it for PD this year.

    I ASSUMED that most of you guys were seating the VLD's into the rifling. Was I wrong?
    How about for the SMK and A-Max bullets?

    Who sells Clinch River bullets? JLKs are often impossible to find for the 6.5.

    Dang. I was going to suggest checking OK Weber for the 6.5mm JLK's, but even they are out.

    BTW, whats this about CR 135gr VLD's? Is this a 'confirmed' rumor? No mention that I've seen yet on their website. Sounds like they'd work pretty well in a smaller capacity case like a 6.5-08 [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    I havent played around to much with the seating depth on the smk and the amax, im seating no more than .005 of the lands the only day i shot paper i was getting constant 1/4" groups, one of them had the last three go in the mid .0's, for a load im using 47gr of imr4350 atop a cci br primer.

    With this cartridge (or with specific powders for this cartridge)is there such a thing as a "favorite primer?

    as far as primers go-whichever gives the best accuracy and best spreads on your velocities.
