I almost went with a 6x47. But went with the 6mm-284 instead. I use Lapua 6.5-284 brass for it. Easy to neck down. And it is a screamer. Send the 110 ATips at 3280 FPS (after barrel settled down). Crushed a buck at 1207 yards with it last season. It is a laser. Shoots in the 2s if I do my job: ragged holes at 100-200 and tiny little groups on steel at a grand.First off I am an avid hunter, absolutely new and green to the reloading process and long range shooting. I have a cousin that is a genius at this and have talked much with him on suggestions / feedback which has led me to start shying away from standard rifles and delve into custom.
my question is: based on the wealth of knowledge and experiences present here I welcome your thoughts and feedback on how you would conduct the build - any details are appreciated.
I have a Defiance Deviant (short / medium) action with a jewell trigger. I am between McMillan or manners stock and all but sold on nightforce optic. My goal is 6x47 lapua.
barrel preferences on twist, make, style, anything welcome. Fire away
Thanks in advance!
