Re: MORE SPECIFICS on 6.5x284 and different powders
I am in the process of exploring Ramshot Magnum in my 6.5x284. Book max states 62 grains with the 140 grain bullets. In virgin Lapua brass I started a batch at 60 grains and seated .030" off the rifling. Forgot the chronograph as we were so excited to get this new rig out. It was in a butchered up sps stock and the trigger was over 5 pounds. 3 groups average under MOA for 5 shots but was left with extractor marks on all 10. Once it's bedded up proper and has the jewel trigger in place I will do a proper ladder test. My data will probably not do much for anyone as this barrel finished at 30.25". Will post photos and specs in a couple weeks.
