Re: 6.5x.284 Norma Help Needed

xMark, good to see another kiwi on the site good luck with your 7mm

Wayne, you are probably right but we tend to clean up a few Tahr in a sitting. I am probably just over worried.

alg good to hear the a-max used as a huntin bullet. I imagine the bullet is over 3000f/s also. These custom actions make it difficult to detect pressure. measured some cases from 53gr loads and they had only expanded .0002 I believe .001 is max. probably should get speed and try and get something between 2950-3050.
Why should I sit off the land?

Sit off the lands.. just an opinion.- I know some bullets will shoot better into the lands, but if they shoot ok off them, you avoid the possibility of opening your bolt to find an empty case, a bullet stuck in the klands, and powder inside your action.

Some will not agree on this but I´d rather minimize the risk.
You can also carry a cleaning rod just in case..
