Just read the daily bulletin and, man that is some incredible shooting! Great job! An excerpt from the article: "Andy’s load was 47.5 grains of H4350 pushing 142gr tipped Sierra MKs in Winchester brass." My question is: Wouldn't that be on the low end of the velocity chart? If someone can put a number on the load, I'd appreciate it!

Thank you

Wasn't at the shoot but know Andy. I would say the charge is a bit slow but it was a hot and humid day. Every barrel is a bit different and all charges don't necessarily produce the same velocities.

When I was shooting the 6.5X284 at long range matches that was the load I was shooting, and while on the low side of speed it was wicked accurate.

FWIW i will assume he was shootin a 6.5x284

that 142 smk would be moving about 2880/2900.

belive [very subjective] that that 142 smk work best in the mide 2800, maybe less. [that where i've had my most accurate loads]

Accuracy trumps speed in each & every match I've ever shot.

The slower node may have less wind drift since drag increases exponentially.
