Re: More 6.5x284 Questions...
how many different lengths did you try? With my redding die when i am starting new loads i will start with my longest one i plan to shoot, load up three and then loosen up the bullet seater part of my seater die and turn it in a quarter turn which usually yeilds 12-15 thous deeper bullet seating. i will usually do 5 different lengths. Once i find the length that it likes the best i will start playing with powder charges going .3of a grain at a time up and down and see what i get. I also think you can bump up the powder charge a bit. I noticed some loads are reloaders nest go up to about 55.5gr. of 4831. Work up slowing and see how it reacts to the increase in powder. bedding it also be just what it needs to bring your groups in under an inch
