What barrel length.

With a 26 incher 52grs of RS60 will get around you 2900fps depending on atmospheric temperature.any higher I was getting pressure signs.some run there's on 52.5grs.probaly best not starting above 51grs just incase.

The scenars run  30 to 40fps faster than the hybrids.

I used the scenars over 56.5grs of N165 last Sunday and had a PB.it was chilly so I expect they were doing less than 2800fps.when I chronied them they were doing average 2820fps yet again in warmer temps

RS60 is an excellent powder for the .284, which will give you MVs about 2950 fps out of a 32” barrel. BUT, it will erode the throat very quickly.

My old barrel was being eroded by 0.005” every 100 rounds. I’m not going to use RS60 in my new barrel.

The RS 60 is a double base, like the RS70, and both will be punishing for the barrells. The 62 is a simple base, but in a 30 "tube I do not know if it will rise to the node of 2850 fps, otherwise the Vhita 150 does not know if it will be too fast for the 180 of Scenar?
Thank you.

Or RS52?
