Re: Any 22-284 shooters?

Did some barrel break in rounds today, I really like how easy this 22-284 is to find a load for. This 100 yard, 3 round starter load was with RL22 @ 50grains with a 75 grain A-max clocked at 3400fps. I'll push it further till I see pressure signs, H1000 at 43grains looked good too althou I will go for more speed.

Should be less wind Friday, so far this rig is way to much fun!!

Interesed to see what it takes to get it turned up more.

My 22-243 shoots the 75 grain vlds at 3450 with 46 grains of h4831sc. No signs of pressure either.

I really enjoyed my 22-243AI which averaged 3,670 ft/sec with the 75gr A-Max moly bullet. Groundhogs HATED it.

WOW!!! now that is impressive. I remember that post from www.6mmbr.com, Thanks for posting your results.

How many rounds do you figure before the barrel starts to toast? whats your shoot & clean rate?
