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.
