Re: 6.5 X284 vs 300 ultra
I think JE, JC, Michael and others pretty much summed it up for you. First, there is no comparison between these two cartridges. Between these two, If I was a target shooter I would choose the 6.5-284. For hunting it is hands down the 300 RUM. Both can be equally good at targets there is just no need for using the big 300 RUM to just punch paper. For hunting there is no comparison. The 300 RUM is far and beyond the better hunting rifle. It can do things in a hunting situation far beyond the little 6.5-284. There is really nothing to argue here. There is just no comparison.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
