Record-Setting .284 Win F-Classer

Naw, just throw in a single shot follower & call it Christmas. The 284 would be a great selection for this rig, top shelf brass & a TON of projectiles to play with.
Of course, as a Single Loader, the WSM would work just fine too & without compromising powder capacity with the heavy weights..

Might I add in the 7mm RSAUM? Shorter than the WSM & all in all, pretty much equal. Far more suited to feed from a short action.

    Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

    My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    Thanks for all the help. I have started researching some of the calibers mentioned and some might fit the bill.
