Re: 6.5x284 shooters
FatBoy, Im like you, and not that concerned about velocity, but figured Id bump it up and see. I didnt have any pressure at 52.0. My buddy has a 6.5x284 that he shoots at 2850 and its shot 3-shot 2in. groups at 1000 and 5-shot 5in. groups at 1000 (under perfect conditions), so who cares if its alittle slow.
As far as seating depth, I guess its where it likes em. I had a somewhat promising load at 48.5 H4350 at -.020 and tried seating a few thousanths into the lands and it shot for ****, the rifle must like these with jump.
Ive read this caliber is finicky, and it seems to be as 4350 and RL22 were not that impressive in THIS rifle.
