6-284 and 105gr bullet

I know this question has been beat into the ground and i have googled, googled, and googled some more on load info. for this caliber. Everything i find is in the lower weight class or the thread starts off and after 2 or 3 post they start listing 75-87gr bullets and brag on speed. I am having a this 6-284 built on a R700 LA and is being built by Benchmark Barrels. They are going to twist on a 27" Light Palma contour barrel. I already have all my component ( 105gr VLD, Nosler Custom 6.5-284 brass and Redding Dies) Now i just need to decide on Powder and primers. So any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Yotehunter

    i have read alot of good about the reloader but i am not familiar with it. I have always used Hogdon powders. Is it temp. sensitive? All the post that i did read with good velocity readings and accuracy were using RL22

    There are a handful of us on here using Fed 210M's & Ramshot Magnum (I'm using the 107smk) Very accurate & my experience shows great consistency. Single Digit ES is quite achievable & velocities knocking on the 3400fps door have been approached (Lapua Brass). Best group I can recall right now is 1.75" at 500yds (on steel). Burn charts show right between H-1000 & Retumbo IIRC.

    A safe starting load would be
    54.5grns
    COAL of 3.100

    ^^^Good place to start & work up, velocity is around 3125 from a 28* BBL

    Welcome, keep in mind, you will more than likely have to fiddle with seating depths, especially if you are going to use the VLD.
