    Wow! nice groups Eric. Darn good shooting and that SP rocks. This is encouraging as I just bought a rifle in 6.5X284. What was the make of that "flatbase"? are these the only two bullets you've tried? Thanks for sharing man. JohnnyK.

    I got the bullets from a guy at the IBS 1000 yard nationals a couple years ago CS is on the box cant remember the guy that makes them.
    I have shot 142g SMK a lot in my 1K br rifles with good results I dont have any to try I need to order a box or 2 of 500 sometime this season. I have had good luck with R-22 and H4831SC with 5 shot groups in the 3" range at 1000 Yards in BR matches with the 142g SMK. We will see how it shoots April 17 as I plan on attending the Iowa 1000 Yard match and shooting the SP.

    Good luck with your 6.5x284 it is a very accurate cartage.

    Hey thanks for the info on the bullets and powder. I have both those powders you listed (plus several more). I'm waiting to order brass/dies and bullets (moving to Savannah, Georgia) and it's about to drive me crazy. Good luck with your "shoot" in Iowa and I hope everything goes smooth for you. JohnnyK.
