Re: 6.5x284 Full Custom
In a 4 shot string I averaged 2984fps with 51.3gr. Thats the highest I've loaded. Accuracy was Ok at .75 MOA and ES was ok at 22fps. But my smith encouraged me to back it off a about 2 gr. because my barrel is still fairly young ( about 50-60 shots) and it would gradualy increase in velocity to where i want it. Also he said my groups would tighten up also.
Now I've got 90 shots through it and 50.5 gr. produces 2947fps. Thats a slight increase because 50.8gr produced 2941fps, about 15-20 shots prior to that. So he's right, but he also said it may take up to 120 shots for my Brux to hit its peak speed.
Groups have all been under 1 MOA and most have been under 3/4 MOA, with 4 shot strings. I hoping to get in the 2950-2975fps range under 50 gr. of H4350. I havn't seen any pressure yet either.
