Re: 6.5x284 cooper results

Sorry, I mean 2900 fps in my 6.5x284. I must have been thinking about my 6-284 with the 75grn V-MAX.

Re: 6.5x284 cooper results

sorry i did not reply. I got my cooper at sportsmans wharehouse in boise. I had a friend that works there that had ordered it then couldn't afford it when it showed up.
I love mine I just wish that the action was a tad bit longer so I could seat the berger bullets out longer without having to take the bolt out on an unfired round. If my memory serves me right I thinks he said it took 9 months to arrive but Im not positive. But for accuracy and shooting it I love it.

Re: 6.5x284 classic

I am trying to find a 6.5x284 in the classic model to carry in the field. Do you guys think that I can obtain the same accuracy levels. All I can say is wow, good shooting. I have never handled the varminter model, but it does not seem like a rifle I would want to carry in the sand hills for miles.

For these loads , or the caliber in general, what range should I limit myself to on a whitetail/mule deer? ...375 yards of energy? If conditions were right/calm I sure wish that I could go further because I will have the chance many times. They just bed up and look down at me with no chance of a stalk. I know I could simply get a bigger caliber, but that is not the point. Being surgical is.
