Finally got to shoot my 6.5X284!!!
Finally, I got to shoot my 6.5X284, McMillan, 28" Hart #7 contour barrel, 8.5-25X50LRM1 Leupold, badger bases and bolt knob built by Chris Matthews.
All I have to say is wow!!!
Chris you are da' MAN!!!
I shot the 142SMK and 140A-Max with H1000 and 4831SC. I shot 12 of each with different powder charges varying half a grain each 3 shots.
I would like to post the 3 shot moa, but I am unsure of how to do this. So, how do you actually measure a 3 shot group, do you measure the 2 that are the farthest apart? Average all 3? Someone please explain this.
I know that I had several three shot groups that were touching and in a triangle shape, another that pinholed with the other bullet touching just to the left, and the worst was what I would consider a 3/4" group.
Chris what did you tell me should be max charge on this gun, say using H1000 or 4831SC, I also bought some VVT160 and am curious how that will work.
Good job on the gun Chris, top notch work buddy, can't wait to get you started on the next!!
