6x284 and 115 DTAC

Finally got around to trying some of these today. It was 67 deg. and cloudy after a significant amount of much needed rain fall. I had shot some through the chronograph to see pressure wise what was safe and made it to 47 gr. of RL 22. I started to get a shiny ejector mark on every other round and velocity was between 3072 to 3094 fps. This round shot great and the primers were still snug but with the 46 gr. the primer was factory new tight. My rifle is a M-70 CRF with an ABS/Rock 1-8.2 5r and my load is Lapua brass, Fed 210M with 47 gr. RL 22. Is this the best I can expect? The 46 gr. load had velocities with quite an ES, I don't have my notes, and wouldn't do beter than 3/4 inch with 46.5 slightly better. With the 47 gr load I shot two 5 shot groups with one below .3 and the other close to that except for the one I pulled. Once groups get like this I don't worry about measuring because this is as good as I can shoot. If anyone has any advice on a better route great, otherwise I'm going to get some drops and see about the neighbors prarie dogs.
Thanks
Lance

with the barrel , powder and primer combo you are using, you should try the Berger 105VLD. very good B.C. and better performance on small game.

Thanks!

UncleB,
I have some 105 gr. Berger's I might try but I had a great load for 105 gr. A-Max and they blew up.

Ernie,
I think I might try 4831 as it seems to be a good powder for this cartridge. Sooner or later though it's time to shoot and not develope loads.

Agunner012,
I'm not sure what the prefered twist would be with Tubbs' 6xc but with a 6x284 my 8 twist works fine.
