Itís by far more accurate.


I have noticed my OAL is all over the place. I should look into one, itís all about consistency.

Got some N565. Virgin brass.
57gr
2945
2948
2950
0.4Ē group

58gr
3010
2997
3017
0.9Ē group (faint ejector marks, one finger bolt lift)

Going to do some fine tuning, my goal was 2950fps. But appears this powder is leaving me a little more on table.

Load 1 bullet going up by .1 for the last 2 grains before max
Youíll find a flat spot where the velocity doesnít change much
Then play with your seating depth

Not to derail this thread but just wondering what your barrel length is on your 6.5 x 284 Marky_Mark? Contemplating the same for my 6.5 x 284 is why i ask.

Thanks.
