    6mm roe deer bullet

    Your welcome. I'd like to caveat my last post. When I said my experience was not of a bullet exploding or fragmenting in an unwanted manner, I must repeat my experience is only of shots that have not hit the shoulder, just clean "engine room" shots.

    6mm roe deer bullet

    I was sceptical as maybe you are. They were recommended to me by my local gunsmiths Dauntsey Guns who are in a high density roe area. They said that the feedback they'd had from customers was good. I can't deny it's marketed as a varmint bullet but my experience has not been that of it exploding / fragmenting in an unwanted manner.

    6mm roe deer bullet

    Forgot to say, I worked up a good round with N140 but settled on R15 in thecend as marginally more accurate. Admittedly R15 is more temperature sensitive so to be quite honest the N140 only slightly less accurate would have been the more sensible choice.

    6mm roe deer bullet

    Shot in the region of 50 roe with 87 grain V-Max in 243 Win @ circ 3100fps MV. No silly head shots, all heart and or lungs. Not on one of them have I accidentally hit the shoulder, so I can't account for how they expand if you do. What I can say is this, these are by far the best bullet I have used on roe. No excessive damage, whether 40m shot or 250m shot. If you hit the heart and or lungs with the odd rib only on entrance on exit then you get good exit and blood and never more than your normal 20 metre run before they collapse for obvious reasons. I have 308 and 284 but 243 87grns are my roe preferred choice. I say I've shot about 50, it may be more, I'm just being conservative. They are reasonably prices and good BC to boot. Mike
  5. None of those loads were showing any pressure signs.
  6. Yeah, I have been using RS60 based on MikMacks recommendation, however I too wanted to try less of a barrel burner. Mine is a Carbon wrapped Hardy barrel 284win with a 0.318 neck. Chrono readings with RS60 were. COAL 3.114", 51grns, 3 rds in fps; 2862, 2851, 2853 3.151" 51grns, bullet jam; 2843, 2856, 2853 3.100" 51grns, .024 jump; 2817, 2814, 2816 The first shot we took with 51grns measured 2924, I can't remember the COAL but might have been 3.025" before Mik throated it out a bit more whilst I was there.
  7. What COAL and barrel length are you shooting those 162 amax from Noideer? I was planning on loading some 162g ELDs with N165, I ran my data through QL based on 26" 1:8 barrel and 3.100 COAL and it was showing absolutely max pressure at 55.1g of N165. Now I know QL can sometimes be off the mark, however 2 whole grains is a lot. Birchall, if I Remember correctly Nathan Foster in his Ballistics website suggests 280Remington should be a likable comparison. I wouldn't load againt 6.5x284 as different barrel diameter would give different pressures??. Where's Laurie when you need him? Cast your pearls of wisdom please Laurie.

    Can this be right?

    Oh, and I too hardly ever use my PM2 below 8 power.

    Can this be right?

    I have a PM2 3-16x50 FFP P4F MRAD single turn. Had it new about 12 or 13 years ago. I also have an IOR Recon, had it about 12 months. I love the PM2, would buy another in a heart beat. Thought I'd give the IoR a go as everyone was raving over them. I like it, it's a good scope, but I don't like it as much as the PM2.

    rebarrel expectations

    Was this gunsmith in the Netherlands or one of your neighbouring countries? Curious.
  11. Don't forget location too!

    Carbon wrapped barrels

    I have a 26" Hardy on my 284Win 1:8 done by Mik at Dolphin. It's on a Sako 75 which Proof don't make blanks of the corrects tenon size for. Only had it a short while and haven't done enough load development yet to say if it's a good one or not. Pros, looks nice and is lovely and lightweight, cons, because it's light, which is what I wanted, noticeably more recoil than my 20" .308. I suppose you can't have your cake and eat it! Mik bought a number of barrels of Hardys when he got mine. He also stocks Proof. Best of luck in whatever you decide on.

    Bix\n Andy trigger sako 75

    What are they like Dan and how much do they cost? How do they compare with a Jewell on a R700 for instance? My 75 has the standard trigger.

    Thanks Laurie, as always very informative and useful ATB Mike

    shehane or 284W

    Is the n165 still ok with a 26inch barrel? I would have thought as it's slower burning it'd be better suited to 30 inch barrels. Not that I've tried it. If it is ok then great as I have a tub I haven't opened. It'll be worth giving it a go. I feel I've still got a bit of load development to do with my new 284 as it hasn't been as tight as I was expecting yet.

    No one else has said what bullets they are using for given velocities. Bullets and weighs please.

    shehane or 284W

    284W COAL 3.100 inches, 51.0 Grn RS60, 26 inch 1:8 twist Hardy barrel 2815 fps. That's with about 50 rounds through it. Using 162grn hornady eld-x .

    Hornady ELD X no thump

    I've just got a 284 win with 26" barrel on a Sako 75 long action. It's chambered with a .318" neck rather than .312" standard so I don't have to neck turn. Mik Mak can take the credit for that, not me. I also had it throated for the 162 grain 7mm ELD-X. I'm running COAL of 3.1" & 2816 fps. I took my first two deer on Saturday morning a muntjac buck and a roe buck. The munty was only 50 metres away, the Roe buck over 100 but under 200. Both had good exit wounds, plenty of evidence of bullet expansion and a noticable thud on impact. I know I've only taken two animals so far but I thoughtdI'd share my experiences with you.

    IOR Crusader problem

    If your spending that much on a good scope surely you can stretch a little more for a 20 MOA picatinny rail or 20 MOA rings. Why would you want to compromise?
  22. Try phoning, Meeks F & Co, 197 Warstone Lane, Birmingham Jewellery Quarters. Google him. I'd be surprised if he couldn't help you. Regards Mike

    6.5x284 cases hard to chamber

    I'm with Vince on this, I'm convinced it's a shoulder bump issue. I really would suggest you watch that YouTube video I suggested. It's free to watch you know :-) and only takes a few minutes.

    6.5x284 cases hard to chamber

    Have you got the Redding comp die set (set of 3 dies) if so the one without the micrometer gauge on top is the one you should be using. It's the Redding body die. Use it with the method I described above.
