Re: 6.5x284 Rifle

Rifle shoot great as expected. Here are some pictures of the shooting school. My load
Lapua brass
Fed 210 primer
49.7 gr Hodgdon Hybird 100
Berger 140 gr Hunting VLD
COAL is 3.070
I was getting Sub 1 inch groups at 200 yards didn't get pictures of groups. We shot at 100 yards for sight in and went to range and shot steel at 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000, 1500. 1800 and wind blew the 2000 yard target over before we started shooting at it. My 6.5x284 was only shot at the 1000 because the wind was so strong so didn't try the 1500 but shot the 1800 with Bob's 338 Lapua. I would recommend going to a shooting school if you get a chance. You will learn a lot and get a chance to improve your skills and just shoot a bunch.

Re: 6.5x284 Rifle

Awesome gun. 6.5x284 is a huge contender for my next custom build. And it would double as my sons first big game rifle.

Thanks for sharing!
