    6.5-284

    I was looking on the Internet the other day about this caliber and I came across this article,think it was a br comp and in some championship event this bloke shot a 1.5 inch 5 shot group at 1000yds,wow that's amazing

    I knew a gunsmith back in 1980 who had been wildcatting the 284 since it was introduced. 25/284, 6/284, and 6.5-284. He sold a lot of 6-284's to Antelope hunters but said that the 6.5-284 was the most accurate.~Muir

    PS: Dumb luck aside, a group like that has less to do with the caliber than the shooter....

    Rich DeSimone set a tough record to beat in the IBS Light Gun category with 1.564" 5-shot group at 1000 yards with his Ackleyized 6.5-284 Super and Clinch River 147s

    I bet he didn't just fill the case up with a Lee dipper and stuff a bullet in eh Bewsh. (I have a 6.5x284 and pleased to say it shoots very well)

    I've been using one for stalking, Ive also have a straight 284. I think its a great case. Both are sweet to shoot and perform well. I don't practice that much on targets and have not really pushed the straight 284 out yet but the 6.5-284 I got a 1.2 inch group at 500m shooting from the bipod.

    Barrel ife is 1200 rounds - accurate rounds.

    Im on barrel no 3 with my own.


    Its a very very accurate calibre and in the right hands shoots tiny groups.

    My own rifle has accounted for many many deer of all sizes and ranges from near to not near, using Barnes 130 TSX


    Check zero the other day ,,,,

    im loving my 65-284 100 rounds down and still a 1000 yard gun but i am now on a second barrel


    the straight 284 will shoot inside it though in the same wind
