I know you can buy brass head stamp as 6.5-284 from Lapua, Norma, and Hornady. If Hornady is loading ammunittion it is news to me.

6.5-284 WILL be my next rifle caliber. I love the 6.5mm round.

Shato, Not knocking your groups, because 1/2-inch groups are good groups.
I just think you need to spend more "load development time" after season, before you call it good enough on that load. This is after all a custom rifle with a match grade barrel. You might just cut your group size in half?
I would try other 140-grain bullets, play with the seating depth, tryother primers, try a few more powders.
Heck if you listen to me, you will have the barrel shot out before you settle on that perfect load.

Have fun with it,

Mine likes H4831SC and the 140 amax in Lapua brass with Fed210M primer. It will shoot 3/4"-1" at 400yds. I have not tried it past 400 yet.
