My 6mm-284 has a 10 twist 26" Shaw and it would not stabilize the 105 Bergers even when I pushed them hard. I think Berger recommends an 8 twist.

    This is the 95 grain.

    Ok sorry, I misread your post about the 105 A-max's. I just got some 95 bergers to try in my 6mm/284 too.

    Let me know if/how they shoot, and how far into the lands if you would.

    Thanks

    Tyler I've tried the 95's in my 6mm Rem. and it doesn't like them either. I tried several seating depths and a few powders but nothing worked out to my satisfaction. Some rifles just don't like some bullets. Usually if I don't find something that shows promise after a few different loads I will just move on to another bullet. I don't like wasting a lot of time on something that won't work. A lot of the times if you do find a load that will work it will be so finicky that you can't trust it in all conditions or at least thats been my experience.

    I couldn't get the 190 gr. VLD to shoot worth a crap in my .300 WM Sako 75 with Lilja barrel. Tried all kinds of seating arrangements. This rifle just seems to do better with lighter bullets, so I might give the 168 a try at some point.
