    I shoot a straight.280 in mid-range matches using the Sierra manual’s recipe w/Re-15. 150gr SMK. Never failed me.

  7. Greyfox replied to the thread 6.5x284 or 280AI.

    I personally like Retumbo for the 140 class bullets running at 3000FPS. With the more recent heavies like the Berger 156gr Elite Hunter,...

    Both are excellent cartridges for your intended purpose. I doubt any whitetail could tell the difference, even at extended ranges. I...

  12. Greyfox liked lancetkenyon's post in the thread Why won’t my bolt close?.

    Why not FL size? I FL size every time, bumping shoulders back .0015-.002". Accuracy is phenomenal with a good load. By the looks of...

  13. Greyfox liked codyadams's post in the thread 6.5 156 EOL.

    Two goats down today!! I would say performance so far is typical for Berger. Bullet sized entrance, 2-3" exit. Both goats were shot at...

  15. Greyfox replied to the thread 6.5 156 EOL.

    While I really like Retumbo for the 140 class bullets, R26, IMO is a better powder to use with the heavy-longer bullets. R26 generates...
