    Straight .284 Bullets

    Thanks Laurie I think I will try the all three types. I have just checked and I have a 8:25 twist so hopefully the 183's will work? However I do like the sound of the 175's being easy to setup. I don't want to drive the load too hard...been there and done that on the 7mm SAUM! So I will go steady and see what the rifle does and the results on the target show. I may stick to RS70, or do you think RS60 might be a better bet? Cheers Mark

    Straight .284 Bullets

    Just about to start some load development on a new Straight .284. It will be for 600-1200 yrds steels & paper. I have a long action, Bartlien 8.25 twist, 28". I'm going to use RS70 or RS60. I have used 180 Berger Hybrids in a SAUM, they were good but they are getting expensive. I was thinking of using either Sierra 175, 180 smk's. Which would be better? I have seen the new 183 smk's, any advantage? Any real life experience with these bullets? Cheers Mark
