Any loading tips for 6.5-284??

I picked up my gun and will start out using 284 Winchester brass. I ordered a Redding full length die and will run the brass thru that first to neck it down. Then, I will run the K&M expander mandrel thru all of them and turn necks. Finally, a Redding neck bushing die will be used, bushing size is .002 under what I want the loaded round to be. Naturally, all cases have been match prepped. Does that sound like the best way to go about this or is there a better method?

unless you have a tite neck chamber you should fireform the brass before you turn the necks.

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
