    I never had to much luck with them out of many rifles , the few than did shoot them perfered some bullet jump around .040"-.060" to the lands and still the rifle was finiky with them.

    I have heard of some guys that got great serults with them so your rig might like em..

    my experience with the 6.5-284..

    I dont have too much experience with the 6.5-284 my other load which uses bulk remington core lokt 120`s is with 44.8 grains of imr 4350(sierra`s book acurracy load for 120 grainers...) which states a velocity of 2900 ft/s but my chrono only reads 2721 ft/s average...

    in the box of barnes XLC`s there is a printed paper that recomends you should put >0.030" of bullet jump..to get best acurracy..

    but man those bullets are so long...

    please help.!!
