Necked up or Down? Afterall the 6.5mm is smaller than 7mm.
BTW I am a big fan of the 6.5x284. I was lucky enough to shoot my first every anything at 1000 yards this past Aug./Sept.. I shot in the IBS Nationals at Quantico, Va. and had a blast. I shot a friends rifle and did better than expected. My first group ever was bad at 16.5 inches but I did redeem myself. My 2nd group was 7.7 inches and my 3rd was 4.9 inches 4.9 inches from a rookie, proved to me that the 6.5x284 is an accurate caliber. With it's accracy the 6.5 should be one heck of a hunting round.
