    Let's see those 284s

    Hi folks.

    After getting my 300 win mag sorted I've decided I like the idea of having a lighter and compact rifle to shoot out to 800y max on a good day.

    Hence going back to what I was going to do originally and build a 284win.

    That being said with playing Mickey mouse with rifles and I'm currently speaking to Greg at Terminator products I'd like to see those 284s!

    And go!

    I have two

    First a M595 in a McMillan Edgetech CF stock. 22" barrel. Really nice.

    Then old stumpy the 17" T3 with DPT magnum on it. I shoot 162g Amax at a bit over 2700 from this one, which holds 1000 ft-lb to 800 yards and shoots like this at 400 yards.

    Loose the Factory Tikka rings Cam - When i had them on mine the scope moved in them under recoil. Even with the stainless screws fitted to them they still bind up and dont tighten properly. I replaced with Talleys, all good now.

    The talleys are coming with my next lot from gunworks, due in a week or so. I dont trust the tikka rings either

    Yep sure is, I brought it as a 7mm08, it was already cut to 17". I shot it before I had it rechambered and it put 3 in one hole at 100, I almost didn't want to mess with it incase it stuffed it up, but it panned out obviously.

    my recent purchase. only just started playing around with loads and it seems to like the 150 gamekings. but for some reason the more powder i put up it the groups blow out. the 16'' barrel is a bit on the short side for my liking but its how i got it so i will run with it for now, i never intend on this being a long range rifle but more of a nice compact carrying about rifle. and that hopfully it will give me the same poke as that of a full lenght barrel 7mm08 rifle but in a smaller compact unit.

    Maybe try a bit faster powder like RL16. It seems to work on the 6.5CM well and could be a contender for the 284 with a short tube??
