Anyone using H-1000 and 140gr VLD's in 6.5-284 Norma?

Hello all,

I was just wondering if anyone on here is using H-1000 to push their Berger VLD's out of their 6.5-284 Norma. What would be a safe starting point to work up a load for this combo....shooting through a savage LHR?

    Nope, I am using RL17 in mine. I looked through my data and I see:

    24" barrel
    Berger 140 VLD
    H1000
    start - 51.5 gr = 2562 fps
    max - 54.5 gr = 2731
    COAL = 3.228"

    Thank you! That will at least give me a reference point. Much appreciated.

    Yes I am and that's what my gun likes the best. I tried several other powders before h-1000 and this was by far best results for me.
