Need some help from 284 Win shooters

If someone could tell me what the COAL of a 284 win loaded with a 180 berger at 3.468 to the ogive using the hornady ogive measuring tool would be i would really appreciate it. I am trying to find out if i will have enough mag room.

no, but I can measure the 180 Berger from Ogive to meplat if that would help.

My crude measurements show ~.715 from the ogive to the meplat.


Hope that helps.

That was an easy one. Are you building a 284 or what?

Re: Need some help from 284 Win shooters

Not really building but I am going to rebarrel a savage weather warrior 270 win to a long throated 284 win with a 1:8.5 brux so I'm trying to figure how much free bore i need for my reamer and how much mag room I will have to play with. I am going to give the 195 grain EOL a try, will use it for my goal of a 1k sod poodle.
