    It looks almost identical to the one I just posted underneath you. Good looking gun.

    50.5 - 52 grains of H4831 and Sierra 142s or Berger 140s is magic in my 6.5x284

    Once you reach 2850 FPS it will bughole.

    You can run it faster, but there is no need. I have 20 reloads on my brass. I don't have to bump my shoulders back for several firings too.

    Good Luck

    Thanks. Im supposed to find a load for a friend 6.5 and he gave me 140vlds and h1000. Ive got 1 round loaded from 54-57.5gr. I expect to see pressure before that. How far did you work up and where did you see pressure signs?
