    6.5-284 and RS70

    Trying to figure out a sensible place to start for the following combination. 6.5-284 143 eld-x, Reload Swiss 70 and cci large rifle primers. I have some factory Norma Golden Target and I'll probably use the brass off that although I was promised some Lapua brass off a friend so I'll use that if they are in good nick. It will be ran in a 24" 1 in 7.5 twist barrel. I usually do a ladder test and then work off that but there is little to know information out there in terms of safe start weight or max loads. Any suggestions from those that have used it?
  3. I'm in Ireland Ro6.5. I believe my Smith met them at IWA.
  4. I have the E-lite ordered but you said you would have to check if the proof research barrel would fit the channel.
  5. Beautiful set up, Edi has a very similar build in the works for me using a Kelbly Atlas tactical action. Looking at these photos I hope the barrel channel is big enough!!

    McM A5 for stalking

    I had a McMillan A3-5 on a stalking rig, coped very well with it but its not ideal. If your sold on that design then go for the Etac as mentioned above. Edi, any information on when/if the new E-lite will be made for remington actions? I have a 700 long action footprint that would love to be fitted into one!

    McMillan Stalker

    Hi, could you please explain the benefits of the sunny hill bottom metal? I'm building a similar set up and it would be a shame to have a big AI mag sticking out the bottom of the stock!

    Borden Alpine .308

    NIce work Bradders, my own smith drills the medallion and hands it to me as a key ring, its nice to have em hanging off the gun safe keys!
  9. Hi, could you post some pictures if this is still available? Also what is the round count on the barrel and what type magazine is in place?

    Tikka M595 build question

    Thanks lads, had a feeling that would be the case but better ask the more knowledgeable lads! The search goes on!
  11. I have been looking for a left handed action to build a 6.5x284 for a stalking/long range rig. I have been offered a Tikka m595 in excellent condition but I'm not finding much information on the suitability of it for a 6.5x284. I know the action is well sought after for builds but will I run into trouble with the Coal of the 6.5x284. I am planning on using 140 eld's and vlds. Thanks

    Tikka T3 PMII Ultra Short

    looks great, how does it compare to the Kahles 624i?

    .308 barrel length? How short?

    I got the rifle back a few days ago. I went with 18". I have only fired factory ammo so far, sub half inch with Fiocchi 150gr SST's going 2773 fps.

    What projectile for this .308?

    I am picking up my .308 soon so starting to order some components. Its an 18" 1 in 12 twist barrel. Which would be better suited, 155 or 168 Amax?
  15. Hi, could you send me pics if sale hasn't been agreed with gaz6br? padoyle@rocketmail.com
