Re: 6.5 .284 powders
I used this EXACT same load with rem 9 1/2M primers last year and was getting 2980fps out of a 26" barrel. I went to a new lot and now 51.6 is only getting me 2840fps. Have you noticed big swings lot to lot?
This is my 5th pound of H4831SC, and the only one to disappoint me. RL22 is running over 100fps faster than my current H4831SC,, so something doesn't seem right.
I agree with CrowMag's load, as well as RL22 in a similar weight, and 4350 starting in the 47gr range and working up slowly.(It's a much faster powder).
I've also tried V V N165, but ES was wild, as in over 130fps average, so I dropped testing it.
