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

Just started working up loads for my 6.5x284 norma savage 116 FCSS 24"

So far i havent had any luck with 140 bergers at 100 yards, i tried RL 17 & Retumbo.

Tried 130 Bergers and found a sweet spot:
Lapua Brass
51.5 RL17
.090" jump
3100 fps

0.45" groups at 100, havent had chance to load a bunch and shoot out there yet.

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

Tried lots of load combos and settled in on Retumbo with 140 Hunting 140 VLD Bergers, Fed 215 primers, Lapua brass, .075" off the lands. Recent lots of Retumbo with 58 gr produce 2990FPS, ES under 10, and have great temperature consistancy using two different rifles with 26" barrels. This load with both rifles produce .25-.5 MOA at 500 yards. For target shooting I like 53 gr. of H4831sc with Fed Match primers.I get 2840FPS out of 26".
