284 Versus RS62 or Vhita 165

Recommended Posts

I read, that for cold loads on the 2830 fps with 180 in the 284 the RS62 is a bit better than the Vhita 165. Does anyone have experience in it?

Thank you.

Hi I used vit 160 and 180l lapua and had a 100.17 at 900yds

rs 70 was better than rs60 with lower pressure and more speed 54g

Hi .

I use N165 in my .284 F class rifle (not Shehane). 55.5 grains gets me 2800+ fps. Using 180 / 183 grain Sierra M-K's sitting about 10 thou off the lands. Its a very useful combination.

The barrel I use is a 34 inch Bartlein with 1:8 twist

In the end the armorer gets me a Victrix of 322 at 284W. I do not want to burn the barrel, Spain does not allow easy substitution, but I do not want to stay for the last ... I thought that cold powder like vhita 160 or RS62 could be the solution to reach the 2850 node with the Scenar 180L / SMk183 bullets, ( cheaper than Berger). But I do not know loads and if they will be appropriate ... I resist to think that it has to use double base: RS60 / RS70 or vhita 550/560 to reach the node of 2850. I hope that the 32 "give me the necessary game.
