I am currently pushing a 140gr Berger VLD Hunting bullet 2915fps out of a shilen select match grade 1-8" twist barrel that is 27" long. I am wondering if this is an optimal velocity for the caliber and bullet. So, please post up your load data and results for your 6.5-.284. I am thinking about testing new powders if need be. I am using IMR4350 but I don't have my load data in front of me right now so I am unsure how much powder is in the load.
