Re: 6x284

I don't think that he wants opion and sound advice,I think that he is only looking for those that will agree. Instead of taking advice and opions when given, he comes back and tells everyone why they are wrong and he is right,I say let him do it his way he may or may not get away with it,but it's his choice......
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

Re: 6x284

I think your way off base. I agree there is presure, that goes without saying. What I am trying to say is, I was showing no signs of presure, I had no signs of primer flattening, abnormal case strecting, loose primers, ect. I know custom actions don't show the normal signs of presure and you have to be safe when working up your loads.

I don't think you have read all of my posts, because I do want opinions and advice, and I will admit when I am wrong. I don't want others to agree with me, if they think I am wrong, debate me, and if I am wrong, I will admit it. One more thing, when I have told people they were wrong, and I was right and someone proved to me that I was wrong and they were right, I admitted it and thanked them for there help. For example, I just changed my upcoming project from a 300-WSM to a 6x284, because I was wrong about what I thought it could do, others debated me and proved to me that I was wrong and going in the wrong direction. So please, don't make an assessment about me that is not true.

I am not affraid to ask questions, give advice, speak my mind, defend myself, or tell individuals about what I have achieved with my individual projects knowing it might be criticized. I am not affraid to take constructive criticism, take advice, admit when I am wrong, but I don't like it when someone like you makes a wrong assessment about me.

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!!"

Re: 6x284

I have a 10" twist 6x284 26" BBL and it will not stablize a 95gr bullet let alone 105. Damn it all to hell boys !
