Tell us why you would go with a 6.5x284 over both the other 6.5 offerings? Please expound on your LR experience with it while you’re at it....

Dude,
Threading a .264 bullet between wire fence openings requires a level of precision...You should know this. 🤣😎

This day and age, makes zero sense, like the 6.5 ai, which I'm a fan of...

Wouldn’t the 6.5x284 give you a little more at long range if you wanted a short cartridge?

I have a couple of Creedmoors, a 6.5-06, couple 264’s and a 26 Nosler. I’m a deer hunter, never shoot over 300 yds.

I'm partial to the 6.5-300 Weatherby especially in a short action and shooting EOL's. But only out to 400 or so as the energy drops below acceptable killing levels...

We know Hanco... and you have dozens of Leupold scopes on those long range rigs.... maybe you should stick to the 223ai thread?

I've read that target shooters are going 6mm due to lower recoil, but I suspect that barrel life might be just a bit better wth the 6.5.

That money you would save buying the .260 might not seem important when you start shopping for ammo, if factory figures in your plans. There's a LOT of 6.5 stuff available. Also, you may want to consider resale value, or not.
