Friend of mine just got his going, very nice system. We used the 142 Sierra MK and H4831 I believe. Very impressive cartridge at long range but dosen't seem to have the knock down on deer so far (I think he's doing something wrong, after all it's Groceryman).

I'm sure you'll love it, mine should be here next month, it's coming in from Tac-Ord with a PacNor barrel.
Ric I will bring mine along in Oct maybe we can get to shoot (no grocerys) over in Cody.Disregard that last email I sent you I got ahold of Than today. Thanks again.

PS. 6.5 284 I LIKE IT
I shot in WY last week and used AMAX 140g and SMK 142s with 51g H4831SC LAPUA brass for PDOGS you shuld back off some and work up like normal shot good in my gun. Dont use the Hornaday brass.
