Re: 6X284 (Load for 87 and 75 grn V-MAX)
Desert Fox, your exactly right about the V-max bullets. I think many underestimate the accuracy of V-Max bullets. By the way, awesome groups and great shooting. I have had excellent results with the V-MAX aswell. I shoot the 40grn V-max out of my 220 Swift, and I shoot in the 1's and 2's all day long. The expansion of these bullets is incredible and they blow the H*LL out of varmints. No other bullet, in my opinion, comes close to their explosive power. I am really looking forward to seeing how the 87grn V-max will shoot. Like I said, I am wanting to get close to 3800fps with the 87grn V-Max, however, it will probably be more like 3700 to 3750fps. I can't wait to see what the 87grn V-max, traveling at 3750fps, will do to a varmint. I will also test the 75grn V-Max, I think I will be able to push the 75grn V-Max at around 4000fps or a little faster. I have heard that shooters are getting excellent results, at long range , with this bullet too. I will let you know as soon as I begain doing load testing. I just finished cleaning flash holes, uniforming primer pockets, necking the cases down from 6.5 to 6mm, trimming, neck turning, ect about two hundred pieces of Lupa brass. I can't wait to shoot this baby!!
Desert Fox, what is the length and twist of your barrel?
