Re: 6.5 284 Build
With the weight, action length, barrel, bullet, your are thinking about , you might consider a Rem 260, or Creedmore. You will trade off some velocity but the cartridge might be a lot more balanced for the kind of rifle you are building, and you could get longer barrel life. For a 6.5x284, I'd go with a long action. IMO.
