In the end, the only thing that matters is what's safe and accurate in your rifle.

There are always bigger cartridges when needed.

Keep us posted.

Will do. I'm hoping to test this weekend.

Re: The Frustration Continues!!

BML what model savage 111lrh, 110 max1? If so, with a 24" barrel something about 51grns of 4831, norma brass, 140 amax running at 3074fps doesn't sound kosher. I have tried that combo only jumping the amax .055" (3.134" oal) got ejector wipes at 54.5grns with a 26.5" barrel and never broke 2950fps. I'm running 3070 avg now with Retumbo. Don't follow any listed data on the 6.5x284 unless it specifically says norma behind it, hodgdons is a good example, they show a max oal of 2.970", I bet if you backed your amaxes .010" out your oal would still be 3.150"+, that .180" leaves a lot of extra space. I have seen rifles that had to be tuned down to shoot and the same amout that liked running wide open.

It's the 111LRH. 26 inch barrel. Highest of the 10 was 3084 and lowest was 3062

Get a big enough stick and you don't have to beat it to get enough speed.

Re: The Frustration Continues!!

BML the 2" brake isnt part of the barrel. What chronograph are you using, something isn' t right, what is your OAL?

Re: The Frustration Continues!!

I never actually measured it but assumed it was 26" + the 2" break. I'm using my buddy's F1 Chrony. I don't have the OAL off the top of my head so I'd have to check my notes at home. I do know that I am 2.530 to the lands.

Re: The Frustration Continues!!

Try setting the amaxs about .060" off the lands with a oal around 3.125" with 56grns H1000 or 58grns Retumbo with fed215m or cci 250 primers as a start. Also make sure its not copper or carbon fouled.
