Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

According to Nightforce, if using a 20 moa bases and medium rings .885, a 56mm will fit on a Sendero/light varmint contour, but will not fit the Palma. I would have to go up to a 1" ring!

Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

On sunday I went to the Remington - Bushmaster Long Range Regional Championship at Reade Range, Fallen timber, PA. I only went to observe, as I have never been to anything like that before. Competition is not my thing, however, I really enjoy the long range aspects of it. Everyone there was very nice and more than willing to answer any questions I had. I did get the opportunity to talk to and watch Bryan Litz shoot. I also had the opportunity to watch John and Dianne Hoover shoot their matching 6.5x284's! I picked up some Lapua brass from Mr. Hoover while I was there. Accuracy One Shooting Supplies - Specializing in Long Range Shooting

I have narrowed it down to these two scopes:

Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x50 w/MOAR Reticle
(Top of my list, most expensive, like the moa/moa, zero stop)

Leupold MK4 8.5-25x50 w/TMR
(Always had good luck with Leupold, don't like the moa/mil reticle, no zero stop)

Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

Update:

I was undecided about putting a brake on my 6.5 x 284. Well I pulled the pin and mailed my check to Jim See @ Center Shot Rifles. I went with the mini round muscle brake and will have it milled down to my muzzle diameter of .90.

Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

Did you check with jim on reducing the diameter of his brakes? I use a lot of those brakes. The way they are made there is not much room for reducing the diameter.

Yes, he said as long as I don't go below .850 I'll be ok. The flush look is a nice finish!

Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

To go down to .850" the brake starts at .885". I thought you said your finish diameter is .900"

A 1" brake will be in peices at .9"

Nothing wrong with a nice taper.

This is the .885 on a .705 muzzle.
