6.5x284 cooper results

Hey guys. Was able to finally able to test A few new loads out of my new cooper. It seemed to really like 47 grains of H4831sc. with 140gr.smk. I dont know how to post pics on here so If you guys can help It would be appreciated. It measures .350 out side to out side. so if you measure the group outside to outside minuse .264 it measures .086 I think. This is the size of the group Right? Thanks

To post a picture you have to join a "hosting" site. Joining is about the same as how you joined here. You then have to follow the instructions at that site and get your pictures uploaded there.

Dave King gave some detailed instructions on how
to post pictures

It is pretty simple if you can ever get it done the first time. Kinda like riding a bicycle. Learning is the hard part.

Re: 6.5x284 cooper results

Screech, that's some good shooting. You gotta love the 6.5x284, it's an awesome round. My 6.5x284 averages in the .1's, at 100 yards, all day long. My best three shot group is .093. I know I can get better than that, I just do not want to change anything with this load. My 6.5x284 has a tight neck 290 dia., here is my load for my 6.5 ;
1. Case-Lupa
2. Powder-52.5grns VV-N165
3. Bullet-Lupa 139grn Scenar
4. Primer-Federal 210 Match
5. COL-3.160
6. Velocity-3900 fps

I would love to have a Cooper for the collection, I am thinking about getting one in 22-250. How do you like yours, how much was it, how long did it take you to get it and where did you get it at.

Thanks,
Wildcat
