    Hey folks,
    I'm working on a 284 Win on a Surgeon SA Repeater. So, I will be loading light (140 - 160gr) hunting bullets to magazine length (2.80). What would my freebore be to land me .002 off the lands? From what I've been reading most guys are shooting 175 to 180gr VLD's and running about .175 freebore.
    Thanks
    Kyle
