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

    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

    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.

    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.
