Re: My 6.5 x 284

Overall:
I wasn't looking to correct for wind, just see how this load grouped at these ranges. I made no adjustment for spin either. Looking back, I would have shot earlier in the morning and slowed my rate of fire down a little bit. My next 30 rounds, I will be tipping the bullets, and seeing how those do. IMO, my first 1000 yard group was the best. I need to make a few adjustments and improvements to try and tighten things up. I am very happy with the load, as I had very little vertical with my first group.

Re: My 6.5 x 284

600 Yard Target
Conditions: 550AM@68 Degrees
MOA: 9.75
Group: 6"

My load was:
Bullets: Berger 140 Grain Hybrid Match (.618 BC)
Brass: Lapua 6.5 x 284
Powder: 49 Grains - H4350
Primers: CCI BR2

Little high, thought it would do better than 6" @600yards. First time with the BR2s. Vertical looks good! Cleaned for carbon after this group, off to a 1000yards.

Re: My 6.5 x 284

1000 Yards Group 1
Conditions: 650AM@68 Degrees
MOA: 23.25
Group: 5.1"

My load was:
Bullets: Berger 140 Grain Hybrid Match (.618 BC)
Brass: Lapua 6.5 x 284
Powder: 49 Grains - H4350
Primers: CCI BR2

Group looks decent, but curious why my 1000 yard group is better than my 600 yard group. Ballistic was calling for 23.25 up and I added .75 left. Again, vertical looks good. Barrel was cleaned for carbon and dried prior to firing.

1000 Yards Group 2

My load was:
Bullets: Berger 140 Grain Hybrid Match (.618 BC)

WTF, not certain what happened. Left the 23.25 moa in there for the federals. Wicked high! Left dirty trying to see if things would tighten up!

Vertical looks good. Took a moa out and it came down. Again dirty barrel. Wind wasn't a factor all morning. A little haze a times.

Re: My 6.5 x 284

140 Hybrid on the bottom/140 VLD on the top. I want to see how the VLDs do at 600 or 1000 yards! I can't decide which range to test these at! I can't do both, one or the other! Contains: 49 grains H4350, Lapua Brass, and Federal 210M.
