Re: my long range rigs

What load are you shooting in the 284 win? They both look awesome.

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Awesome, how much freebore? I am going with about .270 in mine because i plan to shoot the 195 berger for fun around the 1800 yard mark, but am going to use the 162 A-Max as my primary bullet for deer and antelope out to 1k, and the 168 barnes LRX for elk out to 600 yards. It will be built off a savage LA weather warrior and a Brux 24" 1:8 twist. How much does your 284 win weigh in at?

Re: my long range rigs

the criterion is throated for 180 bergers. i'm hoping to find some 162 amaxes myself for steel. my rig as seen in the pic weighs exactly 15lbs. definetly have ur barrel made longer than 24". u won't get to take full advantage of the .284 without at least a 28" barrel.

Re: my long range rigs

i am wanting a 24" barrel to keep the weight down, it is a #4 contour non fluted, i am considering having the smith chop it down to 25 or 26" though for a little more velocity.
