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

Re: 6.5x284 shooters

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
