I have data in the 6.5X284 and .270 WSM with MR-4000 compared to other powders if you want. I will have to send it via e-mail because of the format lw_fulton@yahoo.com

Re: 6.5-284 Ball powder?

I would be happy to show my 6.5X284 results with 120 Ballistic Tips and 130 ABs.
I get "invalid file" when I try to upload. Excel spreadsheet 2003 version.

I have tried MagPro, Magnum and 4000MR ball powders with these bullets. I can get more velocity with VV N-560 by a 100 fps or more. The Magnum is almost as fast as Retumbo in the 6.5WSM with 130 Accubonds but has a higher SD and less accuracy. I will continue to evaluate 4000-MR in the 6.5X284. My e-mail lw_fulton@yahoo.com
