Don Ut,
I just popped on my computer and saw your post so I could not resist. Why would you shoot 70gr BK's with such a low B.C. out of a 3 groove 1-8" barrel when stepping up 35gr's you could extend your range several hundred yard's. with 70's you could get away with a 1-12" twist. just curious.

Brian, it isn't my 'main' load. The rifle was built for the 107 SMK that performs rather well at 1000 and a bit more. My best group at 1100 yards so far was a tad over 6 inches. I posted the 70 grain info just to show that all 3 groove Pac Nors don't blow up other bullets.

I use this rifle for varmints and predators. The 70 grain load does great out to about 500 yards.

Does anyone have decent data for such a beast. I am looking to build a hotrod 6mm and am looking for suggestions on the caliber or loads for the 6-.284.

I have one and have shot many deer with it. I have even shot one between the eyes at 400 yards. My load is RL22 and the Nosler 90gr Ballistic tip. My barrel has a 12" twist so it will not shoot anything heavier than the 90gr pills. But it is very impressive. Longest kill on a deer is exactly 600 yards. Hope this helps you out.
