In the vid section there is bull taken with one a 985 yards I believe. YouTube has another a guy took a cow with 120 Barnes at 900. 3 shots, nice grouping, complete pass through for each bullet.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

I'd like to know what load you ended up with too. Haven't shot mine lately. Too much going on. I think mine was just severely copper fouled. Bought some Bore Tech cleaner and was amazed at what came out of the barrel. This was after a thorough cleaning with other solvents. Ill try to shoot it again this week.

Re: First post. 6.5x284 ladder test problem

My final load was berger 140 hybrids, CCI standard primer, 52.8 grains of h4831sc. Bullet length just touching the lands. Didn't try them pushed into the lands cos I want to be able to unload without the risk of removing the head from the case. On my ladder test 2980 fps (same load) was a good sweet spot. However the above load was running about 3075fps. I think this is the barrel bedding in and giving less resistance. Gonna try reducing my load back to 2980fps. Might even tighten my group up further!!
