Any 22-284 shooters?

Finally I am getting close to finishing up on a long forgotton project. Just need to make some blind bottom action screws and apply a finish to the stock. I am wondering if anyone else shoots a 22-284 for varmints/coyotes/wolf ect.......

This one is a 1-9T, 27" stainless bull, cyro treated, cases are necked down 284 Winchester turned to .014" neck thickness.

I used to have one 400 rounds and my barrel was toast. Started loosing accuracy at 300 rounds. Don't do too much load development. Extremely fast flat 13 moa to 1000yds

How often do you order barrels? You would already have to have one on order, to get it in time to rebarrel next year.

i would love to have one and shoot the 90 grain berger out of it! That would put the hurting on any varmint within 1K!

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Re: Any 22-284 shooters?

Well I think mine should be done this weekend. My gunsmith and his brother shoot the 80 grain berger out of theirs. The 90 grain VLD wasn't making it to the target! They maxed it out for velocity at 4000fps. Now with the 80 grain VLD they are shooting it at around 3550 fps I think. I am hoping the Scirocco 75 grain will be going about 3700 fps out of a 28" BRUX. With their twist they couldn't push the 90 gr much over 3200 fps and it would come apart.
