6.5-284

Hi Folks,

I am real new to this board. Sounds like a lot of good info changes hands here, and this long range thing is just my idea of fun. I have noted that quite a few folks here are hunting in my little corner of Co. so when you are around Glenwood give a shout.

I am taking delivery of a 6.5-284 in the next week or so. I was wondering if anyone out there has anything good to say about it as a hunting rifle, or anything bad for that matter. Any suggestions as to loads would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Really Silt, I work in Glenwood. I used to shoot at the Basalt range alot. Rifle range is only a short drive I use it sometimes. Mostly I use my back pasture. i am really looking forward to playing with the new rifle.

    Do you still shoot a 6 BR? That is an awesome round in a small package. Lance Weber from Basalt built me one in the mid 90's. What a shooter!!!

    Thanks Eric,

    I was going to get around to emailing you and asking. If I can get a scope on it and some loads worked up I will be going to Ca. the 1st of the year and may try it on a hog or 2.
