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.
