A friend had one of these and his barrel was gone at 600 rnds. I don't know what barrel. He didn't chamber this round in the new barrel. He said it was fun while it lasted though.

    Surprised with the powder choices. I would think RL-33, Retumbo and maybe even US 869 might be better powders for this overbore chambering.

    My 6mm-284 does very well with RL-33. Heavy 28" 5R bartlein 105 Berger hybrid 3535 fps.

    Anyone ever try the slower powders?
    We have been trying some vitavouri N 570.
    Seems to work ok. Didn't see much difference in velocity compared to R 25.
    The N570 is not all the great of a powder to use on a 22 caliber neck as it is so coarse and big.

    Read this guys post about half way down the page, you'll see the cartridge and target. He was using a pull down surplus powder W860, slower burning that H1000.
