I don't have that particular rifle, but be aware the 6.5-284 does tend to eat barrel throats up fast. I suggest reading this 2005 article for general information. The Savage will let you change barrels easily, even if you don't have a lathe and have to send them out every thousand rounds to be set back. You may want to consider cryo-treating a barrel for this caliber to extend the throat life a bit.

Thanks. I don't shoot that much, but I may with a rifle like that and an area full of wild hogs and coyotes.
