share your 6.5-.284 load data !!!

I am currently pushing a 140gr Berger VLD Hunting bullet 2915fps out of a shilen select match grade 1-8" twist barrel that is 27" long. I am wondering if this is an optimal velocity for the caliber and bullet. So, please post up your load data and results for your 6.5-.284. I am thinking about testing new powders if need be. I am using IMR4350 but I don't have my load data in front of me right now so I am unsure how much powder is in the load.

Re: share your 6.5-.284 load data !!!

been shooting this round for over 12 years now and i like RL 22 and RL 25
i will take a good grouping load over speed any day of the week. cuz in the end that is what matters the most for putting meat in the freezer.
only after i have worked up a load that shoots the best i can get it then i will check to see just how fast it is going .

norma brass
54 gr. RL- 25
fed 210 match primers
speed ? well never met an elk that could tell how fast the bullet was
that killed him lol

or

norma brass
52.5 gr. RL- 22
fed 210 match primer

If it's consistently accurate in your rifle, then it sounds like you've got a great load.
