Thanks for the details Alf,

I wonder how some of the slower powders would work. I am using RL-33 in that 6mm-284, bet it this powder would produce faster velocities.

That's a nice build. I like the 2b and stock combo. Very functional.

Wow. I thought 3200 with those 105's was speedy. That's another level of flat shooting there. Have you got any of the 110gr Sierras worked up yet?

What OAL are you loading those to ?

Is a 700 LA necessary, or just convenient ? I realize a SA 700 is about 1/4 inch too short

Thanks

The 110 Sierra was the bullet of choice that I originally was focused on, which is why I went with a 7.25" twist & the reamer was set for.

Turns out, I struggled with huge runout from the beginning that took a while to diagnose, so I may have to revisit them again.

Right now I'm at 2.875" OAL in the lands a bit with the Hybrids. Not sure where I was when new with the 110's offhand.

This gun was/is built as a 6.5 PRC. I went with the long action in the beginning so as not to be hamstrung by OAL restrictions of a short action, or added costs of detachable bottom metal. I just added this 6 PRC barrel to the mix.

Thanks for sharing build info aalf 🤓

Any plans for something on the 300 PRC case ? 😃

It doesn't interest me at the moment.

Too bad Hornady didn't do the PRC case instead of the RCM's back in the day. They could have cut a wide swath if they would have come out of the gate with 7mm, 300, and 338 versions.

Amen. The RCMs have for all intents and purposes, been a bust.

Update on Shazam.......

After early struggles finding a load, I put the project on hold, and screwed the 6.5 PRC barrel back on to get ready for deer season.

This week, with favorable weather in the forecast, I decided it was time to revisit the big six before winter showed up for good.

Reviewing my notes, I was at a loss on what to do next. I had a decent load with the 105 Hybrids, but wasn't happy with consistency, so I decided to give the 108 Hornadys a whirl.

I loaded up test loads with R-26 and H-1000. H-1000 was a bust, but the R-26 gave me hope. I raced home, loaded up 10 more rounds of 56 grains, drove back out, and shot two groups at 200. Wasn't real impressive, but......

I had 11 pieces of brass left on this cycle, so the following day I loaded them up, and drove back out to test at distance. I had been feeling that this barrel didn't like to get very warm, so I shot slow, and walked back & forth moving the target, so at 35 degrees, it was well cooled down for the next group.

Too bad the wind had got a little sporty by the time I got back to 450 yards. The target blew over twice while I was trying to find a log to weight it down. I couldn't spot the shots through the spotting scope either, as the mirage had kicked in as well. Pretty good showing regardless......I quit......
