Hi, I am new to the forum, and it seems there are quite a few people here shooting the 6.5. I just got a Savage LRH in 6.5-284 and I'm struggling a little bit with this thing. I have only gotten one good group out of it and that was after a lot of testing. I'm wanting to shoot the 140 Berger VLD's but I'm really having a hard time getting any velocity out of them this group below was my best (probably ever), MV only 2650. Load info- 48.0 gr 4831sc, Remington 9 1/2, OAL 3.095 that's .120 off the lands according to my measurements. Cases are new Lapua. I have tried all the powders I had available IMR 4350, IMR 4831, H 4831sc . I found out that this rifle does not like Fed 210 primers, it seems to like 9 1/2s or Win LR. I didn't care for the Win primers they flattened out with a mild load of 46.5 gr of 4350. Could this be a headspace issue? I would really like to get around 2950 MV and .5 MOA groups. I have read where many people are loading around 53 gr of 4831sc. I seem to get a sticky bolt handle near 50, could my gun be this much different? Sorry about the rant, and Thanks ahead of time.
