Starting a new project for a rifle to reach some very distant groundhogs and whitetail deer.Thinking of the 6.5/284 but I don't know a lot about it.I'd like some info. My books don't list it and I have no data. Is this a mild enough recoiling rifle to shoot all day and still enjoy it in an LV weight?

Re: 6.5/284

the 6.5-284 would be a great choice for what you are talking about,as far being comfortable all day,in my 15lb. gun it recoils like a .243 win,and yes i could shoot it all day[ getting new barrels would get pricey though].in comp. rifles the average barrel life of a 6.5-284 is around 1000-1500 rounds-now thats for top accuracy[say 1/4 moa or better].if you do a search of the archives on this board on the 6.5-284 you should find alot info-my-dave
