    I'm putting one together right now and according to some people that are shooting the 6-284 I spoke with as well as Quickload data
    Ramshot Magnum looks like a great powder to try. That is what I am going to start with.

    What length of BBL and rate of twist. Mine is a 26" Hart with 10"twist H4350 Re# 19 and 22 works best with bullets in the 70 to 90 gr range.

    I've had three different 6-284's, and they all performed best with IMR-7828, using 95, 105, and/or 115 VLD's.

    ALF What brand barrels did your 3 6x284s have? Barrel life ? Mine I think I have in the area of a 1,000 rnds all full throttle loads. With 70gr Nosler BT its still grouping under 1/4 MOA.

    I am having a 26 inch 1-8 twist benchmark installed onto a long action rem, .900 at muzzle with flutes! I was looking for 3300 or so velocity with at least half MOA accuracy with the 105 weight bullets. I have Ramshot Mag, I will have to give that a try, I think that powder is temp stable!!gun)

    Better check this against some trusted load data but I think my wifes 6x284 is running 55gr of retumbo with 107s. I have not chronoed it but it shoots pretty well. It shoots much better with the 105 lapuas but they are not supposed to be good for hunting.
