Re: Hornady powder

most definitly, the 284 case has been wildcatted more than it was ever original in the 284 { 7mm ) I have 3 6mm x 284 and 2 25 x 284. Its a very srtong case and a very efficient wildcat in either im sure you have heard of the popularity of the 6.5 x 284. Out of the 6mm i can get 3450- 3500 with a 85 sierra bthp and 1/2 moa. The 25x284 i can get just under 3500 with a 100 grain sieera fb spitzer.

Hodgdon Superformance is the powder.

Re: Hornady powder

I actually got 100 fps out of the 6-284 with it going for group now just not seeing how far i could run it up. Also, i workrd loads 2 years ago for my son in laws 300wsm using 150 nosler bt and was able to get it up also compared to using h-414. I dont or ever will own a 30 caliber so i wasent sure what to try. However i didnt get the velocity that the label said, but if you reload and shoot much you know how advertised balistics work.
