    Hi there,

    I am wanting to find some load data for my 6.5-284.
    Bullets would be Berger Hunting 140's
    Powder H4350.
    Cases Norma
    Primers Fed

    Has anyone had success using these components?

    Thanks in advance

    What you have will do the job. You just need to work up your load.

    I am about to try the Bergers, but have just been finishing off my142gr SMKs with 50.5gr H4831sc, CCI BR2, and Lapua brass. I am getting 2967 fps from a 26 inch Kreiger.

    It takes 51.3gr to get similar velocity from my Savage 12F.
