Use the NORMA reamer and Lapua brass.

Just ask John Hoover and family. They use
necked down 284 Winchester brass.
Son Adam shot a 5.044 group, his sister shot 5.906 (she just turned 15),while dad John shot a 6.1xx and mom Diane came in with a
8.6xx. These were all 10 shot groups in the 16 1/2 lb class at Williamsport on 8/16/03.

John Vonieda's World Record 3.151 was shot using necked down 375 H&H Win brass. The caliber of his own design (308V).

Yeah and they shoot like that time after time after time. They use the old Winchester boxed brass. Mr. Hoover had a great reloading bit in the news letter.

Johh Hoover uses not just Winchester brass but the super old (ie not available now) white and yellow box brass. He bought 743 boxes from one guy in Illinois. Good luck trying to find it, but he says the next best is Lapua.

I bought a 6.5x284 reamer off of clymer about 2 years ago. Not sure if Norma or Win But the gun is a real shooter. I had them reduce the neck to .290. I use Norma brass and like I said its a shooter.

The reamer has only cut one chamber, if you are interested I could make you a good deal.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
