Re: anyone shooting a 6,5-284?
This caliber (6.5/284) has been the most impressive I have ever fielded. The rifle is a 1 in 9 twist Hart 28" medium heavy barrel and built on a Remington 700 with the HS stock and Jewel trigger, with a Leupold 8.5 x 25 LRT 30mm. The bullets of choice are the 140 and 142 match type, and accuracy on paper and in the field was about 1/4 MOA, yes .25 inch at 100 yards, and .5 inch at 200 yards etc. I took several Prarie dogs at 1240 and 1247 yards... but what was amazing was the energy retention at extreme distances. (1 mile / 1500 meters) This rifle probably should have been used for competition as it was so accurate, but I got my thrills with it as I wanted to. It still shoots well, but not pristine after 2,000 rounds of full power loads. I am going to rebarrel this rifle with the exact same configuration barrel if possible. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
