6X284 (Load for 87 and 75 grn V-MAX)

Hey guys, I am currently prepping cases for my 6x284, and I am looking for load info using the 87grn and 75grn V-MAX. My barrel is 30" and 1-12 twist. I am wanting to get about 3700 to 3800fps with the 87grn V-MAX, and 3800 to 3900 with the 75grn V-MAX. I have the following powders in my possession;
H4350
H4831 Short Cut
IMR4831
H414
H380
VHIT N165

I would like to use one of the powders mentioned, so any load data you have regarding the formentioned powders and 87 and 75 grn V-MAX would be great. However, any load data would be great too!!!

There has got to be someone out there that uses this type of bullet. I am hoping for some good advice.

I'm sorry that no one has responded to your needed info. If you are totally stumped, I would suggest that you compare the case capacity of the 6/284 to the 244 AI. Loading data is available for the 244 AI.

I have 244 AI cases and can give you the capacity in grains of water to the case mouth.

Go to the Go Go Varmint Board and pose the same question, you will get lots of help, www.varminthunters.com

I think that you have a world class cartridge, and you are going to make a lot of memories with it!

Re: 6X284 (Load for 87 and 75 grn V-MAX)

All I can do is quote the Hodgdon #26 manual

bullet powder min. max
75 gr H4831 52.0 55.0
H380 42.0 46.0

85 gr. H4831 49.0 53.0

This is the data listed for powders you requested, shoot me an email and I can scan and send you all the data.
You may also find something on reloadersnest.com, lots of data there.

Re: 6X284 (Load for 87 and 75 grn V-MAX)

I did not reply because my barrel isn't that long! I have a 6/284 25" with 12" twist. I mostly shoot 58gr VMax for varmints and 85 gr SGK for deer size game. I tried H380, H4350 and H414, could not get the accuracy and velocities I wanted. With the 58 gr VMax I load 48.5 of IMR4320 (3950 fps). And with the 85 gr I shoot 43.8 of H4895 (3550 fps). 70 gr Nosler BT shoot good at 3700 fps and will probably go with that when I run out of the 58 grainers.
