Still need to upload pictures and weigh the gun. Buti did go out and finally see what my pet load shoots at.

Shot ten rounds and got an average of 2808 fps. Standard deviation of 28 fps. Not sure how good that is but it does shoot the best out of my gun.

Re: Need help with the dream gun

So I was thinking, shooting 140gr Bergers out of a 26" 6.5x284 is a waste. I am using 51.5 gr of RL22, what should be my goal velocity range and how much more powder is that going to take?
