Re: 6.5-284 Load Data

I just put 59 rounds down the bore of my brand new 6.5 x 284. I'm not yet satisfied with these loads, (50.3 grains of H4831 SC & 142 Gr. SMK's w/ Fed 210M shot the best, but I won't mention the size of the groups... I'm working on it. Several of my freinds have their's shooting less than .125 moa.

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.

got mine coming next week

itll be a sako 75 long action wearing a pacnor 30 f class 1;8.5 twist barrel with mcmillan sako varmint stock

i have made up some shooting in rounds using the 140 g amax and 4831 sc powder i have left bullets well out so i can just reseat them once rifle is home

happy days

Re: 6.5-284 Load Data

Hey fellow 6.5 x 284 shooters/reloaders ........i've been trying to locate data for the Barnes bullets...they do not list our cartridge in their manual. They offer some pretty cool bullet types especially for Long Range Hunting but NO DATA......Any experimenters out there ? I worked up a couple loads last year but im a little scared about going too far with it and grenading my new E.R. Shaw barrel, in the Mauser 98 Action.....It should be ok but.....i'd rather find someone else that has done it before.
