Re: Re #17 up dates for 6x284

Thanks Iron Worker,

Thanks for sharing. Have RL-17 on hand will have to give it a try with some heavier bullets. Currently using varget and 55 gr nos bt from 24" barrel @ 4175 fps. It is my calling rifle sighted in .5" at 100 is 5.6" low at 350 yds. Don't have to worry about trajectory when a yote is spotted.


FYI I now use RL-33, RL-17's slower cousin, in my heavy 28" 6mm-284 with Berger 105 target hybrid. Gained 178 fps over max load of retumbo. new vel 3485 fps

The 6mm-284 is an interesting cartridge. Just think, it was wildcatted 50 years ago, right after they produced the 284 win back in 1963. Modern powders, better brass and rifle looneys like us keep it alive.

    One of my favorites for sure, i'm still using the boring old 107SMK & Ramshot Magnum... which is why I posted.

    Have you used that 105 Hybrid on game? 'Yote, 'lope? i've been toying with the idea....

    No I have not used the 105 target hybrid on big game. With all the success Broz has had with the 215 and 230 30 cal target hybrids, I considered trying them on a coues wt. I am hoping that they make a hunting version by next hunting season.

    If anyone has used the 105 target hybrid on big game we would love to hear the story.

    When I had a 10" twist 6/284 I used Re#17 with 87gr V-max. I was able to burn an additional grain and achieve another 100+fps. They H4350.
