Re: My new Rem 700 6.5x284 Left Hand
I have a similar rifle that I built on an old lefty Remmy 700 30-06 action I had. 27.5" Pac Nor 9 twist fluted sitting in a pillar bedded Mcmillan BDL style stock. I run 53 gr of RL-22 under 140 Bergers @ 3126 fps and it's a hammer out to 1350. I run a NF 5.5-22x56 NP2-DD on it but I have to agree with you on the Blue Diamonds. I just bought my first a couple of months ago and I have to say that for a hunting scope it is Awesome! I have it sitting on a 20" barreled lefty 700 in 260 AI. I run 130 JLK's in it with RL-17. Hopefully I'll get to put the smack doown on a muley next week with it here in Utah and post some pics!
