6.5-284 vs 6.5-308
I'm in the process of choosing a 6.5 caliber rifle. This isn't going to be competition gun just an "accurate as I can get it" hunting rifle.
I'd like to just buy a factory rifle and rebarrel it in one of these two choices, but I've read that the 6.5-284 requires a long action if you want to use the magazine and may require magazine & feed rail work. Would the same be true of the 6.5-308 if I bought a rifle already chambered for 308 then rebarreled it?
Also any information on recoil and velocity differences or any other pertinent facts would be appreciated.
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
