6.5's RULE! And the 6.5-284 is the king of them. It's got just enough "omph" to do long range shooting but not so much as to burn out a barrel quickly and it sits at the edge of being a tolerable recoiling round for an all day competition.

Great shooting!

I'm also a big fan of the 6.5284 for the reasons given by Litehiker. While the barrel life isn't in the class of 308, 30-06, etc, I haven't found it much different than many of the commonly used magnums in 264-300 class. Seems better than the Weatherbys and some of the short mags. I get 1000-1500 out of mine before I see a .25-.5MOA change in group size.
