Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

Mine is going to be a dedicated long range varmint and landing gun. Barrel length was selected for max velocity.

    I have a 6.5 x 284 with a #4 Brux, 8". Basically the 140 Berger and 140 A-Max shoot the same. I get 2975 without pressure from 49.5 H4350 and 51.5 H4831sc. 1/2MOA with all combos I try>

    Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

    Here is a barrel question (Broughton Barrel)

    These are the two contours I am looking at:


    5.75 HVY VARMINT SPORTER 1.250 .940 .830 2.5 7.0 26 28 5.6

    Or

    12.4 PALMA HEAVY 1.250 1.00 .900 3.0 7.0 30 31 6.5

    I have come to the conclusion 30 might be a touch long, so 28" it is.

    Is there any benefit to the Palma contours?

    Thanks

    you can always cut it off, but you cant add it. 28 is the best I have found.

    you can get 3100 but you will lose it when you get some round trough it. vv-560 with 140's

    palma is a good one. I like it fluted for hunting. have both.

    As far as Sako Extractors are concerned is there anyone manufacture to go with? Tubb, Gre-Tan, Harris, Superior?

    Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

    Yesterday I went to the Sportsman Show in Harrisburg, PA, Where I was able to get my hands on both the Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 and the Huskemaw 5-20x50 Blue Diamond, I am now leaning toward the Huskemaw! The guys from "Best of the West" were very helpful!
