I was told that the Federal 205s would result in pierced primers with my standard Remington 700 bolt and the BRX and that is why they recommended the CCI450s. I had the firing pin bushed since then so I should be able to get by with the Federal 205s now. So many little little money.

The 450`s are a great primer, but I have a very opinionated shooting buddy that is hard to deal with on occasion who lives and breaths CCI450`s. That alone made me try some different stuff, and I have found my 6/47 loves the Federal 205`s. He hates Sierra bullets with a passion, he hates the 6.5/284 case.

Needless to say it is under his skin with my last 2 outings being pretty successful.

I shot terrible at the last match overall, and he said it was due to me shooting the 6.5/284.

His words is they are either a hero or a zero.

I put a light pass with my neck turner on 30 brand new cases because our Feburary match, he has a good friend coming from out of town to show us how it is done according to my buddy.

I`m still learning and can take my licks with the best of them, but one day I might just pass out a few.

If I were building another rifle with thoughts of doing 1000 yards as well as the 600 it would probably be the 6.5-284. Since I was only planning on the local shoots at 600 it followed to be a 6BR or one of the clones. After looking at all of the shoot results and equipment lists of successful shooters these stood out. No sense in my reinventing the wheel. PPC for 100-300, 6BR or variant for 300-600, and 6.5-284 from 600 out.....that seems to be my understanding. When I'm well versed and a pro then I'll think about others. Of the people's advice I've been taking three of the gentlemen have set new world records at 600 yards in the past couple of years. Those are the ones I listen to. Lots of others give advice to be taken with a grain of salt. Sounds like you know Tim.

the Rifle he built my brother is a single shot 40X action with a 27 inch 223 AI and he sent an extra bolt and has a 30 inch 6.5-284 switch bbl.

it will shoot 40 NBT`s in one hole at 200 yards or the 142 Sierra in the 10 ring at 600 and 1000 if the nut behind the trigger is tight.
