I am new to this Board and a fairly new Reloader. However I have reloaded my 284 with RL 15 and H4831SC with good results. I am curious about the RL 17 but can not find any load data listed. What I have read sugest that you can get close to 3000ft/s with a 180 gr bullet. Although my 284 is built with a short action my magazine with allow me to get an OAL of a little over 3.11.
Any sugestions would be welcome to this newcomer
My 284 is also a short action but i am limited to 2.8 oal by my magazine. I have tried rel 17 with 120-154 gr bullets and did get a velocity boost over other combos and had single digit extreme spreads but 2 moa accuracy. www.6mmbr.com has some good info on rel17 and the 284. Hopefully you get better accuracy than i did.
I may have to try some 4350. I do have a can. I have been using H4831SC and Reloder 15 as a friend had recommended those. I have been getting pretty good accuracy 1 moa but a little better is my aim. Thanks for the comeback. From Tucson huh, My son lives near phoenix. I always thought Redding was HOT can't compare to Phoenix. Tucson is a little more reasonable. Nice this time of year anyway. I can see why you might have to watch your max loads in the summer.
