Re: 6.5-284 Hunting bullet
That's the best news I've heard in a while. Would love to try a 6.5 Accubond.
I shot about a dozen whitetails last year using the 140 gr SST that Jerry mentioned. None of them went over 30 yds. with most dropping on impact, all had exit wounds and all were broadside shots. Ranges were from 40 yds. to 525 yds. Terminal performance was great.
While working up a load for the SSTs I also tried the 140 gr A-max. Accuracy seemed about the same for both bullets in my rifle so I went the tougher SST. Neither shot as well as the 140 gr SMK, but with some work I got groups under 1 moa(barely). When the weather cools down some I'll be trying the SSTs again with a couple of different powders to see if I can cut down on my group size.
Hope this info helps
