Re: 6x284

for deer

85 or 95 grain partition

I would still try the 95 bergers to see all though berger recomends a 1-9 twist but you will be pushing them faster to get the rpms up.

Re: 6x284

I'm pretty sure the 95 grain Berger will stabalize, infact I'd bet a box of'em on it. My 6mm Rem. with a 1/10" twist shoots all the above mentioned bullets, even the 107 SMKs, into 1" or so groups at 200 yds. It's just a plain old factory BDL-V with a 24" pipe and the throat is so shot out I can't reach the lands with any of them... yet, it still shoots bug holes. I guess it's kind of like a Weatherby... a little freebore never hurt anybody.

I'd shoot the 87 V-Max at coyotes and the 95 Nosler BT at Deer... the 95 Berger would be a good option on hooved critters too. Although, I wouldn't expect 3750 out of an 87 grainer... ole' Wildcat likes to lean on the powder scale a little... then pull the trigger HARD. ~JT

Re: 6x284

I'd try the 95 gr Bergers as well. If they don't work, shoot the 87 gr vmax and be happy.

Re: 6x284

25AOD, are you saying I am lying about the velocity I got with my prior 6x284. I really hope not. I was getting between 3730 and 3750fps using the 87grn V-max. There were no signs of pressure, and I could have pushed it harder if I wanted to, however, I stoped because it was shooting .1 inch groups at 100 yards. I used 53grns of H4350, Lapua Brass, and 210Match primer to get that velocity and accuracy with the 87grn V-Max. I used a Nesika Model K, 1.470 Diameter Action, 30", 1-12 twist Krieger Barrel.

Re: 6x284

I'm not saying your lying... just shooting some pretty hot loads. I could probably get a 6/284 to shoot 87's at 4000 and using the right components "see no signs of pressure", but that don't make it right. If a 25-06 won't shoot 87s that fast... a 6/284 sure as hell won't. I've owned a couple of 6/284s and never seen one get anywhere near that kind of velocity. In fact, my 6mm Rem is a frog's hair slower than my 6/284 was with any bullet. I just tend to notice a trend of excessive velocity claims from a number of members on this board... and I'm sure they all have probably seen those numbers on their Chronys. But that doesn't mean it's what should be expected within the normal realms of pressure. Just because your heart doesn't palpatate doesn't mean your blood pressure isn't way too high either... but gone undiagnosed/untreated it can lead to bad things. Same can be said of reloading... just because you don't see the signs of excessive pressure doesn't mean they aren't there. The best sign of excessive pressure is velocities that are out of wack... that's all I'm saying.

And like Momma always used to say:
"It's better to put a sign at the top of the cliff... than an Ambulance at the bottom!!"
