Re: 6.5-284 Load Data

Rimfire,
Good question. So far I am OK for the suggested powders, but will be chasing down bullets, brass and hopefully some factory ammo. Interested in Hornady Amax since they usually shoot so well, nice looking 140 grain available. Will try any 6.5 bullet I can find, then decide on a final load. Have only shot this cartridge once, a while back near the Black Hills and the rifle was very accurate. Flat as a .300 mag and kicks less than a .308 Win.
Lots of paperwork to get in place before I worry about shooting it tho.

This just came on so have not decided on a scope - possibly a 3.5 - 10 MK 4 Leupy but might want a bit more magnification.

My last 6.5-284 was a 26" 1-8 twist Hart Barrel (Sendero contour)set in a Sako Varmint McMillan stock. I would have kept it but the short action drove me nuts. It loved the 140 A-max. with either R-22 or H-4831. It also shot great with 120 NBT's 3250fps (the deer hated em)
I hope to also find an A-max load for the new one and test it out soon on some crop damage tags. I will post results.
