    In terms of velocity and barrel life, they will be similar as they have similar case capacities. If I had to choose between the two, I would lean towards the 284win because you can get Lapua brass. (this from a guy that has a 280rem)

    What is your intended use? that can have a large bearing on caliber choice.
