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 6.5-284 is a fine cartridge, or the benchrest crowd wold not use it to win the matches. However, I would much rather see the 6.5x57 or the 6.5-06 offered by the gunmakers simply because they both have a longer neck. The longer neck would protect the grease grooves on my cast bullet. Just my wish for the new year.
