Yeah i've shot it a bit but not since its had the new stock which should only increase the accuracy. Ive tried a few different projectiles but have now settled on Hornady SST 150g. I will give the new berger 150g VLD's a try when i can get my hands on some just to see how they go also.

Well you were getting the 140gr AB's to 3200 weren't you misty?



that's good for 1,000Ftlbs out to around 850 yards I think.


6.5-284 wouldn't do much better than the .270 with a 150SST or berger VLD I think if you look at the numbers Lips Sealed

Unless you use a 140gr berger VLD in the 6.5

These have been on the forum before but..... Smiley

My long range bunny buster, a Tikka M595 Continental varminter, chambered in .22-243 winchester, suppressed.  Scope is a VX3 6.5-20 x 40


The rifle I used on the last long range shoot, A Weatherby Vanguard Sporter, bedded, floated and a trigger job, now suppressed and chambered in .338 win mag.  Scope is a Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24 x 50 (yes, it was up central shooting rabbits)


The latest long range rifle.  Based on a parkerhale target action, match trigger, 28 inch Shilen 1:8 twist match barrel, gunworks twin port muzzle brake, targex stock and chambered in .264 win mag.  Scope is a Bushnell elite 4200 6-24 x 40.  Weighing in a just over 18lbs and with a muzzle size of 28mm its not a mountain rifle.

I like them, with side focus it makes the scope nice and compact and the 4200's are good

Year having the parallax adjustment on the scope bell is just a pain in the arse, especially if
you spend time in the bushy stuff

Misty, is that a Shawn Carlock adjustable cheek piece/comb or did you source it elsewhere or even make it your self? How do you find it? does it stay put once set? is it comfortable?
