What's the story with F/TR, in 308 ? wouldn't that be something to spend a season in just

to learn a bit?

edi

 

Hi

Yes I am open to all calibers just exploring all the options if i was to change my 308 slot for another.

Hi

I have been looking up the 284 case do they not do a 284 case ?

do you have to change the neck on a 6-5x284 ?

 

Andy

 

Andy, most shooters use Lapua 6.5 x 284 cases and neck expand them to 284 as Lapua are easy to get hold of and are of very good quality.

Bl**dy hell :o I wouldn't want your job :o:o if it didn't allow you 5-10 mins to neck up 100 cases :wacko:

It aint rocket science to do and you only need to do it once.

If you really are that busy then Winchester make .284 brass but the quality is no where near Lapua.

Hi

Am i right in thinking that the 284 cases use the 6.5 x284 die's

Andy

Would it be one pass thru the die Dave and ur ready to load?

 

My next cal is going to be a .284

 

If this is the case then no diff then sizing ur used brass ideal !

Cheers Andy

Just run a 7mm expander mandrill through them and your good to go.

Although mine is a tight neck and I have to neck turn after that stage.

I also use specific Redding .284 dies.

Cheers

No. Each specific calibre (6.5x284 and 284) have their own full length sizing dies to suit.

Just check out Sinclairs website and it will show you the type/number you need for each calibre.

If for example you purchased the 6.5x284 full length resizing die in error, you would have to neck expand each time back up to 284, thus overworking the brass.

The silly thing about this cartridge, is that the Wildcat variant [ 6.5 x .284 ] is the one that Lapua make brass for. The original chambering [ .284 winchester ] only has Win brass available for it.

 

How,s that for market driven forces.

284 Win, 284 Improved or 7mm WSM

 

 

if you havent the time for case prep, you havent the time to load develop or compete.

 

 

You need to make time if youre serious.

If you want a hunting rifle that's fine. A waste of time and money for benchrest/fclass!

Sorry read the post on my I phone and got a precision long range hunter?

Hence I deleted my post when I read it on lap top.

That rifle is the perfect spec.

Bartlein seems to be flavour of the month over Boarder

And another which is pretty much the same as the one in the 6mmBR.com link, mine is built on a BAT M action.

 

Quite a few other F open shooters use this specification including Grant Taylor (who obviously copied me :lol:)
