After some frustrating load development on my newly self built learning experience savage in 6.5x284 I called shilen about what I had expected was my problem. They confirmed for me that the throat in my barrel was not long enough for the 140vld. I was told to send the barrel back with a dummy round and they would throat it to that length. Now my question for those of you that shoot the 6.5 x284 with 140vlds, what should my Coal be for this dummy round that I'm to send them? I know some of you are pushing the 140vld @ 3k or better. Any and all advice is appreciated.
