Re: 264 mag vs 6.5x284
You can buy a 6.5x284 through Savage. You'll probably get a few more hundred rounds through the 284/
Savage Arms Firearms > 111 Long Range Hunter
Savage Arms Firearms > 12 Bench Rest
These would be my options. If you are benching or very short walks, the bench gun would work nicely. The LRH111 would be the way to go for a carry gun.
