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

    you're not wierd, i kinda wana rebarrel my 243 to 6-284 in the future, not sure about barrel life tho, i like a barrel that will last since i've shot about 700 through my 243 this year......

    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
