    I'm pretty sure that the 6.5/284 is Guy Eastman's weapon of choice. Maybe he'll tell you what cartridge works for him, and his experience with it!

    What would be wrong with shooting 125 grain Partitions in it?

    He might be referring to the 125 partition's less-than-stellar BC, and BC is what really makes a fast 6.5 shine.

    The Accubond Long Range would be a much better choice.

    I would personally be looking at the Berger VLDs with that cartridge.

    Barnes has a 130 grain flat base bullet that I'm wanting to try in the 6.5x284 Norma.
    That should work out to 400 Yards on anything I care to shoot, including Elk. If I want to push it further I'll look at a boat tailed bullet like the Berger.

    Vince, what's the B.C. & S.D. on that Barnes bullet? Why no boattail I wonder? I don't care much for flat base bullets.

    From my review it looks like it compares well with 165 grain .30 caliber bullets with a little more sectional density, thus better penetration.
    I'm trying this bullet because in these days of hard to find components it's what I could find.

    Thanks Vince, I'm still toying with the idea of either a 6.5 Creedmoor or perhaps a .260 A.I. in a lightweight bolt gun.
