284 Jazz *UPDATED Range results*

I am off this afternoon to go and get my 7wsm's big brother. Here are a few pics to get you started.






More to come!

Re: 284 Jazz

Specs are:

Defiance action built to SSG specs
accel. firing pin, heavy tang target port
Chambered in the new 284 Jazz
Brux barrel #5 1:9 interupted fluting finished at 28"
SSG mini extreme brake
bolt also has interupted fluting design
Jewel trigger set at a crisp 1lb
HS detachable bottom metal
Mcmillan A5 with adjustable cheek piece
Seekins 20moa base
TPS rings
Nightforce 5.5-22X56 NXS with NPR-2 recticle
All work done by Nathan Dagley at Straight Shot Gunsmithing


We ran a few rounds down the tube cleaning after each shot. We loaded US869 up at 90grs. and a 180 berger. It felt like a 223, the mini extreme was doing it's job better than I could have ever imagined. Hopefully I will get the barrel breakin done tomorrow. Then comes the fun part of Nate and myself working up loads and seeing what it will do.

Nice looking rifle!
Nate sure has done a nice job on it. What sort of velocity are you expecting with the 180 berger? similar to 7RUM? It should handle the 200 gr Wildcat nicely.

Stu.

Re: 284 Jazz

You are correct Nate's work is top notch.

probably around 3200fps. Not really sure yet. I have some 189's also to try and a few different powders. us 869 with 90grs wasn't close to a max load. I will look into the 200's as soon as they become readily available.

Blipelt,
I like the look of the staggered fluting on the bolt to go with the barrel.
Great caliber choice. Should rock those 180's. Great looking rifle.

Great rifle. Belonging to this forum is expensive...so many awesome rigs

Do you have a weight as it's depicted in the picture?

What is the case capacity of your fired brass?

I think Paul/Wildcat bullets has some 200s ready to go.

Thanks for sharing, and look forward to what load you settle in on.

Re: 284 Jazz

Trueblue thanks for the idea of the Jazz. I like the bolt fluting also.

Autorotate the rifle weighs 14.6lbs according to my bathroom scale. I have read somewhere the water case capacity for the 338 norma was around 106grains so the jazz should be pretty close. I haven't checked for myself yet. We fired a few rounds down the barrel and I have to finish barrel breakin hopefully tomorrow. Not to many places to go shoot. Spring is here and everything is muddy or still covered with snow. It is just one of those things.
