Re: share your 6.5-.284 load data !!!
Depends on your chamber I use lighter loads in a couple 30" barreled bench guns and have data from my new 26" hunting rifle.
30" 8 twist .130" freebore no turn neck chamber, 139grn lapua scenar Norma brass .010" in the lands 49.8grns Imr4350 CCI BR2 primer 3.133" OAL 3020fps 4-6fps ES, 53.5grns H4831sc nets the same velocity but the ES is 8~10. Does the same with bergers but OAL is 3.204"
My hunting rifle is a 26" 8.3 twist with a kiff 6.5x284norma match chamber, 140 amax 3.134" .060" jump 57.5grns H1000 3012fps 18-20 ES or 59.5grns of Retumbo for 3076fps ES 7-9, both with Fed215M primers and tested in Norma and Lapua brass, this also gives about the same results with bergers at 3.174" .056" jump.
I have tried H4350, 4831sc, RE22, RE25, Imr4350,4831, and Magpro, I just can't get the speed out of the shorter barrels with the hotter powders.
(Note the Retumbo load runs almost 3200fps out of a 30" barrel) the only reason I don't use this is it is to fast for a true 8 twist and the accuracy falls off.
A good hunting load for out to 6-700 yards is a 129grn interlock jumped .060" in front of 55grns of H4831sc with a 210M primer for 3147fps ES around 13.
I haven't ruled out Imr 7828ssc yet it is showing some promise.
I'm NOT responsible for anyones ignorance, obviously work up to these, save face, literally!
