Re: 6.5-284 140 or 142SMK\'s?????
Rimfire & roper
What size groups are we talking about?
The reason I ask is because I'm also in the process of load development for a 6.5-284. I did a ladder test on Sunday with Re22 and the 140SMK. Had 50.2 and 50.4 grains go into virtually the same hole, 49.8 and 50.0 oppened the four shot group up to .380" at 225 yds.
With IMR 4831 The gun shot a 4 shot .260 group at 100 yds, however this load leaves very faint ejector marks on the case.
I'm pretty pleased with those groups, but if you guys are shooting the 142s into smaller than that please let me know I'll definitly give them a try.
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
