Re: Opinions on 6mm-284 wildcat?

COBRAD, It could be an action problem if it wasn't squared up. If you had the rifle built I'd talk to the gunsmith who did the work and see what he has to say also confirm the twist. I'd also look at the velocity and make sure your not getting them too hot. I'd give Sierra a call and see what there rec velocity is kind of think it's around 3000fps.

Cobrad: Your accuracy problem could be;
1) bad bedding; is the barrel touching the stock and is your point of impact left and right?
2) loose receiver; have you torqued your receiver down to the spec’d torque settings
3) bad scope; some scopes aren’t worth a darn and the internals can fatigue causing you to shoot two separate groups or worse. This is just fine if you are the average hunter and are use to shooting 1-1/2 inch groups and never shoot beyond three hundred yards.
4) Has the bolt face been squared lapped and trued? “Blueprinted”.
There are internal and external ballistics at play and the attributes should be qualified. By the way, I LOVE the 6mm Remington. Not much kick, sweet to shoot and for a varmint rifle, well, I am very partial to it.

Guys, after reading the topic "hyjacking threads" I must plead guilty here, so this will be my last comment on my 6-284. All of the things mentioned concerning this rifle have been addressed, and to no avail. Thanks for your help though.
