Re: 6.5x284 shooters

Have pushed mine to 3000-3100 from a 26" bbl with 140 VLD. Ran a stiff load of Retumbo and I'm at 4000ft altitude. It shot moa @ 600yds+. Longest cold bore shot was 960yds. I find it more fun to run 2900-2950fps. Things wear out faster when you have the throttle to the floor all the time. Good luck, Weezer

    Thanks for all of the replies. For those that are shooting H4831SC, what kind of accuracy are you getting at extended ranges? I use that powder in my 25-06 now so it would be nice to be able to use that powder for the 6.5 as well.

    56-58 grs of Re 25 behind 140's from Lapua/Berger/Nosler is giving us 2920-3080 in 3 different 28" barrels.

    57-58 might be to hot in some barrels.

    Lapua brass, Fed 210M, touching lands

    Surf the web and I think you will find the 600yd match winners running very close to what Grayfox posted
