What is the differance besides the 264 having a belt. I've been reading about the 6.5-284 I here its tack driver I doubt ill ever shoot past 300 yrds soon. Also how does it stack up against a 25 wssm on ar platform? . I seen on savage makes a 6.5-284 but I figured I could always get a cheapo m98 have it reworked. Also is this case a 30-06 base or 308 ? . I think the 6.5-284 sounds catchy and odd so id like to have one.

The 6.5x284 has the same OAL as a .308W, so its going to need the AR10, where the .25WSSM will fit in the AR15. The WSSM is equal to the .25/06, but at a higher pressure.
There is a commercial 6.5x57, a friend has a Dakota 10 chambered for it. He says its you can't make the brass from 7x57, but when I looked up both cartridge drawings it seemed like a pretty easy sizing and fireforming issue to me.
