    hunting load for 6.5x284

    just had a stiller predator action barrelled in 6.5x284.with 24 " kriegar barrel 1/8 twist.
    have some bergar 140gr vld. but because of barrel life dont want to waste 100s of rounds looking for load..
    most of the data you find is for 26-28"barrels .dont know what realistic velocitys wil be and what powder to start with.
    greatful for any advice

    Hornady 140grain Interlock and SST, over Vihtavuori N160 give very good performance on deer and vermin in my six 'na half tu-adeyfour. 24", six groove, Border barreled and same twist as you. MV's with my loads in my rifle run in the 2900-2950 fps range.

    I've still to try N170 but I would interested to see if it offers any benefit.

    I use 129 grain SST, over 54.5 grains of Vitavuori N560, federal GM 210M primers, MV is 2885 fps in a 20" barrel, cloverleaf group.
