Favorite 6mm 284 powder ??

What is your favorite powder for a 6/284? I have a 26" Shaw 10 twist and will either load 70 or 85 gr Sierra's.

Thanks for any info.

Jeff

Everyone's wierd!!

Got a 6-284 but it is an 8 twist and prefers a stiff load of R22 behind a 105 Berger. Therse things are notorious barrel burners so I use mine spairingly on prairie dogs beyond 500 yards. The 55s in the 243 work great to 500
