6.5-284 win loads w/140 VLD's

Looking for some proven load data using H4831SC or H4350. I'm sure there has been some previous threads, but I must be doing something wrong with the search tool.

Thanks,

Doug

I have a good H4350 load for 139 Scenars but can't remember off the top of my head.
For 140 Bergers I shoot 50 gr. RE-17. Getting just over 3000 fps with this load.

Re: 6.5-284 win loads w/140 VLD's

Hey Roadhunter:
I just recently tried a bunch of different loads for the new 6.5X 284.
I did load some different loads with the H4831SC and got to 51.5 gr. before I started seeing pressures. Not terrible pressures but still enough to say stop.
They shot good groups but was topping out at around 2900 fps through my chronograph. I also loaded 49gr. of RL17 which shot some great groups as well as Hodgons Hybrid 100V at 49 gr. Both of these shot great groups but was lacking the fps I was hoping for. My best groups and greatest fps came from Retumbo at 58.5 gr. A couple of reasons I decided to stick with this load. It shot great groups. It gave me the best velocity. (3020 fps with 16fps extreme spread) It is also one of the extreme powder lines not affected by temperatures. Hardly shows any signs of pressure even at 58.5 gr. I am shooting it through a new Savage 111 LRH with a 24" barrel and was quite surprised to see this velocity. This load is shooting a 5/8" group at 200 yd. and for me that is pretty darn good.
Hope something here helps. Let me know what ya end up using.
Oh ya just FYI all of these loads were with the 140gr Berger Hunting Bullet and seated to COAL of 3.120.
Good Luck!

THE GUN THEORY!!!!!!
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it!!!!!

Re: 6.5-284 win loads w/140 VLD's

Thanks for the info guys. I just bought 100 pieces of Lapua brass and ordered some redding dies (s series neck anf FL sizer and comp seating). I'm excited to get started. I have both the Rel 17 and Retumbo I use for other calibers, so I may give them a try too. My rifle will have a 27" Lija barrel, so I'm hoping to get over 3000fps without max pressure. It's going to be my long range Antelope and Deer medacine for the '11 season!

Doug
