Re: 6.5 .284 powders

I used the flash hole reamer that S1 makes.

Reaming the flash holes really maid my 6.5/284 come alive I am having a blast shooting it lately I may get a bolt for my big gun and have a 1.450 30" 1-8.5 Krieger barrel turned up for it with the same reamer you just cant have enough good barrels for one gun laying around.

The barrel is a Krieger 1-8.5 twist 28" long I am shooting right now.

Crow Mag,

Now that you have had a chance to load test a little, have you seen a significant reduction in vertical dispersion once a load is worked up with properly reamed flash holes?

Re: 6.5 .284 powders

I shot my 6.5 today and got decent groups with the 4831sc but the guy that built the gun said to use accurate 4350(50grns) with the 142MK's so I loaded 15 with that and they were the best by far but i think they were a bit hot,I could lift the bolt handle easy but hard to pull back and I could see extractor marks on the case so I think I will back it off and see how it shoots oh and it was doing 3120 to 3172fps with the 4350.what velocity should i be trying to stay at with the 142's?
I am useing the lapua brass and read the post about the flash hole reamers,what is the deal with that? is there some special way to do it? if so where do i get this wonder tool.
by the way my gun is a started out as a tikka M595 then went to accufilte in PA and got a 28" walther 1:8 reverse taper barrel and a trigger job and wears a 8X32 NXS.
