Re: New Cooper 6.5x284
Really glad to hear you got that velocity up there NV. It's possible you might pick up some velocity with the Bergers when you try them with your optimized load. I get 25-40 FPS higher over the SMK's. Also, i have seen differences with ES and accuracy with primer choice. I used to use 215's but recently switched to Fed 210Match with Retumbo. I love the caliber. I also shot the 30's before I won a 6.5-284 at a shoot years back. I worked up some loads and started playing with it, easily hitting baseball sized rocks way out there. I'm primarily a deer/coyote/antelope hunter. The following season I crumpled a whitetail at 998 yards and I was hooked!
