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

My set-up at 803 yards

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

[Linked Image]

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

[Linked Image]

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......

I've seen some [bleep] 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.

This is my third and still have one other, heavy brute that it is.

When I was contemplating the re-barrel, I was leaning towards another 6.5-284. Got all the brass, dies, bullets, and reamer to make life simpler. But...

Just too damn hard to ignore the big six spunk......

I have a prediction (fingers on temples):

One of these days you're going to shoot a 5 shot group and only see 4 holes in the paper. A few minutes later you'll get a call from your neighbors asking if your power just went out too....(grin).

Nice setup. I didn't think there was any where left in the state you could strech out that far.

aalf, I forget the dates that you were hosting the Southern Wisconsin long range shooting get together, could you refresh my memory please? (grin).

I was in your neck of the woods this weekend chasing gobblers, They were gobbling like crazy. And, my son learned all about buck(turkey) fever, It's a long story I can tell you at your 1st annual get together. (double grin)....

Well [bleep], you musta not got the memo, it was last week..... grin

I'm guessing the hunting story doesn't end with fresh turkey breast on the grill..... bummer......
bet he's more determined than ever now.

I drew for this coming week. Weather looks good for the first couple of days, then all down hill. My "shootin' range" is my huntin' spot too.

Where abouts were you?

So yours wouldn't shoot the 115s either?

I put together a 20 lb heavy varmint 30" 6-284 with a bartlein 5R 1 in 7.5 twist. Tried to get the 115 DTACs to shoot but finally gave up and went to the 107s. The sierras shoot fine. I know I am not maxing out the velocity but at 3265 but I cannot complain. Barrel life is precious with this chambering so I stopped when I got excellent accuracy.

Unfortunately my rig is a single shot arrangment as it is a SA Rem 700.

Always good to hear of others experiences.
