You should pick up some speed as you shoot the barrel in but as others have stated above you are in the sweet spot. Nice looking rifle

Thank you. Can't wait to get out to 1000 and see what it can do!

Re: My 6.5 x 284

Went to the range the other day trying to get a few more rounds down my barrel (52 rounds). This was my 100 yard target which measured 3/8" or .375. I shot 2 other 5 shot groups @ 220 yards, both measured at about one inch. I think they could have been better, but I had a few operator errors! Lol! I was cleaning w/Bore Tech Carbon Cleaner between each group!

My load was:
Bullets: Berger 140 Grain Hybrid Match (.618 BC)
Brass: Lapua 6.5 x 284
Powder: 49 Grains - H4350
Primers: Federal 210 Match
Velocity: 2925 FPS

Re: My 6.5 x 284

Well I finally got out to a 1000 yards this morning! We started off at 600 yards and then moved back to 1000.

This was 600 yards/10MOA/730AM/33 degrees. Gun was cleaned prior to shooting today. Cleaned for carbon (w/boretech) with wet patches only before going to 1000.

Re: My 6.5 x 284

This was my first time shooting at 1000!

This was 1000 yards/24MOA/830AM/43 degrees. I pulled my 4th shot high out of picture.

Cleaned for Carbon (w/Boretech) wet patches and nylon brush after this group.

Re: My 6.5 x 284

This was 1000 yards/25MOA/915AM/43 degrees

I added 1 MOA up and 1MOA Left from my last group. The wind and mirage were picking up greatly! First 4 shots were up and to the right. Next 4 shots were to the left. These 8 shots were fired somewhat quickly, long enough to pull the target down and back up again, and then reacquire my sight picture.
