6.5-284 Suggestions

Working on my fathers Birthday rifle in 6.5-284 and am looking for some powder suggestions. Rifle will have a 27" Tube, 1:9 twist. I'm going to be trying out 140SGK, 140SST and 130Accubond's.

    6.5-284 powder

    I'd start with H-4831 SC

    Then H-4350.

    If it won't shoot with either one of those, I'd look elswhere for the cause.

    Don't go trying to find the last 1/8" in group size, or 20 fps.
    It's not a long lived chambering.

    Don't forget about 140 Berger, either.

    Good luck,

    Al.

    I love Berger for target shooting but have heard mixed reviews so I've stayed away from them for hunting. If I can get a load that has good velocity and shoots .75 MOA or better to 450 that will do fine for this rifle.

    I appreciate your help.

    6.5-284 loads

    you don't say what you are going to shoot with it ; or the make of barrel. most of the 1000 yard match shooters, shoot a 1 in 8 or a 1 in 8.5 twist. i would try the loads in the november shooting times and the accurracy loads from sierra and or nosler manuals. lapua braas ( nosler) ; and 210m ; wlr or wlrm primers

    Ron,

    Rifle will be used for deer and hopefully an antelope hunt. Barrel make is Lija. I appreciate the heads up on Shooting Times, will check it out.
