Hello all. I am in the process of developing loads for my savage 116 LRH in 6.5x284. This rifle sports a 26" bbl. and I my intended bullet is a Hornady 140 SST. I have a pound of H1000 that is a slow burning powder. Does anyone load their 6.5x284 with this powder and what are you dropping. Also, what are you getting for FPS and groups? Thanks in advance for the information. MTG

Win. 6.5x284 brass...

My brass is Win. 284, never been fired circa 1970 new brass in cardboard boxes, that I have annealed, necked down to 6.5, neck turned and polished. I will attempt to load from 53.0gr. of H1000 up until I see signs of pressure. I am looking for moderate speed, 2800+ FPS, with exemplary accuracy. BOTW utilizes H1000 in their loadings, yet will not disclose what they are dropping. What are you seating your 140 gr. bullets at? MTG
