Do you have velocities with these loads?
If so, whats the load count with them?

Also, looks like a damn good shooting rifle

    Yep, the barrel and action work anyway. That's why im curious about the velocities, because I either have a slow batch of H4350 or my Oehler chrono is reading a little slow. I have to load 50.5 - 51 gr. to get the speed my smith said I should be able to achieve with 49 - 49.5. Not a big deal. I know every gun is different. Im not seeing any pressure, so that's not an issue. Im just curious.

    Currently at 2925 FPS, said should finish at about 2975 FPS!

    Also running a 28" barrel!

    That is with both loads IMR4831 & H4350

    15 rounds for each powder, for a total round count of 30.

    We will see what happens!

    Thanks shooter. That's close to where I was. Im a little slower but that's with a 26" barrel. Although im not sure just how much the velocity is affected by barrel length with a faster burning powder like 4350.

    Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

    Curious to know if anyone has tried the various brands of factory ammo (140gr) for the 6.5-284? I would like to have a box or two as a backup to reloads on trips!

    Black Hills
    HSM
    Gunwerks
    Best of the West
    Nosler Custom
    Cor-Bon

    A person would go broke buying a box of these at 65-85$ a box!
