6.5x284

I am building a 6.5x284, for my savage 112VSS, who would be the best barrel for this action and what twist? 8 or 9
So far I am thinking about Pac-nor?
I am thinking of 140 grn range.

Also best place for ammo

Re: 6.5x284

There are a bunch of good barrel makers out there and Pac-Nor is one of them.
However I prefer a Schneider polygonal or the Broughton 6.5s have been shooting etremely well also. The Rock 6.5 is another extremely accurate barrel.
There has been a few experimenting with the 9 twists but the majority of the rifles out there are sporting an 8 or 8 1/2 twist.

Re: 6.5x284

Go to BRcentral and look on advertisers page under barrels and Broughton is there. Call Tim North and talk to him.

MY vote is for the Broughton. Got one and one more on order.

Re: 6.5x284

I second the recommendation on Pac/Nor! I am using one of their 3 groove 8 twist blanks for my Magnumlite carbon fiber barreled Nesika 6.5/284. With 140 Berger's at 3174fps the gun shoots 300 yard groups of .348. Good Luck on your project!
