Found a consistent load that works for my 6-284. I pissed around for way too long and have been contemplating re-barreling or just selling out period.

Soooo, after a long session of studying my past notes and targets, in a last gasp effort, decided I should try some 107 Matchkings.

Suppose I'll have to keep it........or raise the price.......... grin


The ex-problem child......



My set-up at 803 yards



The results from there.....got caught in a little let-up on the far left shot...



Moved back a little more.....to 1036....



Not bad considering the twitchy 5-10 mph quartering away wind.....




I think I'll keep it closer to the front of the safe now......

Your definetely the best long range shooter I know.

Damn, those 1000 yard shots are nice. Don't forget my e-mail pic's for the web-site Al.

I've seen some shitt fall to a 6mm/284. Pard had one and I watched him hammer a mountain goat at 400 yards, a moose at about 125, a few deer and a B&C 7' black bear at 150 yards.

OK,

Specs are a S/S 700 long action, 26" Rock 8 twist, .268" tight necked 6-284 throated for the 115 VLD's or 105 A-Maxes. 107's are still half way in the neck with a square mark on the ogive. Magnum fill Classic in 50/50 black/gray, 4.5-14 Mark IV in 30mm Talley lightweights. Weighs in at 9 pounds, 8 ounces.
