Re: 6.5x284 Full Custom

Don't have a 6.5x284. I'm too partial to the 6.5-06AI but most I've shot seem to like both 1000 and Ret. if your getting the vel you want out of your 4831 I think you have a winner. How far off the lands?

    .006 - .007
    Im still working the powder up because im trying to find my slight pressure wall while hoping to find an ES in the single to low double digits in the process.

    Might try .020-.030" off and see what that does to your ES. are you measuring off the ogive or tip? My 7mm and most my 6.5's shoot well seated that far off and all have ES 15 Fps or less. Most are less than 10. I use a lot of H1000 Ret and Ramshot mag.

    Thanks trigger puller....
    I am measuring off the ogive. So you think by playing ( backing off )with my seating depth i can manipulate my ES, with the same charge? To my way of thinking, it doesn't seem like that would affect it too much. But...........I have been proven wrong many a times. I might have too try it.

    Modifying your seating depth can certainly have an effect on ES. As you move the bullet in or out of the case, you change the internal dimension of the case and as a result the pressure changes and that can change your ES.
