Re: 6.5mm-284 Savage

Savage uses the 6.5x284Norma match chamber specs, I have a Savage and I sold a custom remington and the throats were only a couple thousandths different the oal I use in my Savage is 2.498" base to ogive which is a .010" jam, total lenght varies quite a bit from lot to lot with berger vlds, mine has been 3.154-3.193" for a .010" jam. Currently I run .010" in, 59.5grns of the correct burn rate Retumbo(some was like H1000) lapua brass, Fed215Ms, it shoots 3155fps avg, 12fps ES and groups <.2", but it is a 30" barreled f class, don't expect that from a 24" pipe. The 111lrh has a 24" barrel not 26", 2950fps is a good node with the 24"/retumbo setup.

"The 111lrh has a 24" barrel not 26", 2950fps is a good node with the 24"/retumbo setup. "

Backwoods I somewhat suspected this because the muzzle break looks like it is about 1.5 to 2 inches long. When I asked at cabelas the gun guy said manfatures measure from the end of the barrel to the bolt face which will give you 26 inches but every long range hunter i have seen has the same muzzle break. Has anyone found one that does not? So for me I bought the stainless 116 with the 24 inch barrel knowing I probablly would not make no where near the same speed. But when the barrel wears out she getting a 28 inch put on her. For as the gun as it sets I love mine.

Re: 6.5mm-284 Savage

The 111lrh has been advertised as a 26" barrel before but they measure from the chamber vent to the tip so with the break they are 26". The only savage that came with a true 26" that I know of off hand was a special run of 112 varmint series, BVSS I think. The 110, 111, and 116 are all 24", but there isn't a huge velocity jump between 24 and 26, now 24 to 30" is about 175fps with a given load, the slower the powder the more gain. Going from my 26 to my 30 with idetical loads picked me up 110fps.
