Me-
No, you ONLY have to take the bolt out when you REMOVE a loaded round. Putting one into the chamber isn't a problem.

Oops! I didn't see the word "loaded" round. I hope my shooting eye doesn't fail me. (Grin)

Re: 6.5-284: Long or Short Action??

I have a 6.5/284 in a Tubb 2000 rifle. It shoots great, but I wish the action was longer, so I could seat out the 140gr sierras longer that OAL 2.825. It is magazine fed, so that is about the longest it can reliably feed. When I shoot out the barrel I might buy a 260 so I can use the magazine fully. The barrels about 25 inches I think, so I dont think I will lose too much velocity. Actually I hoped somebody would make an action to use the Browning Bar magazine because, it is alot cheaper than M-14 mags, and it takes a long action cartridge, like 30-06. I wonder if Prairie Gun Works can do it?

Re: 6.5-284: Long or Short Action??

I got the rifle in about 3 months, I think. It was 2 years ago, I think. I got #8. I had a Leopold LR 8.5X25 duplex. Now I got a NSX 5.5X22 with R2 reticle. Its a nice scope, but the reticle is really fine. Next time might go with the mill dot. I think for the money its the way to go. Fully adjustable stock and trigger. Detachable magazine 10-20 rounds. Easily changed barrel you can do yourself. It tends to shoot 1/2 groups with most loads and sometimes 1/4 to one hole groups with Sierra 120 match.

Re: 6.5-284: Long or Short Action??

PrimeTime is OK for unload loaded round , I prefer long action for 6.5/284 and because I use long action I prefer 6.5/06 ( in fact 6.5/270 WIN ) plenty of case ( Lapua BR quality ) good price and same velocity as 6.5/06 , 6.5/06 feed as a machine gun cartridge in magazine.

For a bit more velocity with barrel over 30 inch 6.5/06 AI can do the job .

enjoy 6.5

Good shooting
