Better check into a long action I'd say...My 6.5 x 284 rounds are 3.060 OAL and the short action (BDL...magazine fed) is probably going to be 2.80 max OAL.

Re: Help Building a 6.5 284 tactical rig

sealdoggy: You might check out Precision Arms down in Escondido. They build some cool rifles, and they carry some sweet long distance stuff in their store. Worth a call, and they're not all that far away from you.

I'm planning on building a 6.5x284 in the future, so keep us informed on the progress of your rifle if you get time.

Stop by and say hi if you're ever out at Angeles Shooting Ranges on a Mon., or Wed.. A couple of buddies, and I usually shoot there once a week. This week we'll be there on Wed., about 10:00 or 11:00, and next week on Mon..

Good luck with the project. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Sealdoggy, you might want to check out Greg Tannel @ Gre-Tan Rifles in Kersey, CO. He builds thousand yard benchrest guns, and has a few records to his credit. He also designs benchrest tooling supplies,and has been quite innovative in this part of the industry, so i've been lead to believe. He advertises in Prec. Shooting mag., or www.gtrtooling.com (i think).

Re: Help Building a 6.5 284 tactical rig

First off to do it right it is best to go with a 700 long action due to the fact that the 142gr Sierra's are probably going to be the bullet of choice or one of the other longer bullets and the only way they are going to feed out of the magazine is going to be on a long action.I had McMillan build me a Tactical on a 700 long w/A-4 tactical stock,I found the A-4 to be to big and heavy compared to the A-3.I have a Tactical being finished up at the time,It was built by Mike Bryant (www.bryantcustom.com)This rifle I did not hold back on I went with every bell and whistle I could think of.
You said you had 2200.00 to spend well that's what I'm paying for my new one you might want to give Mike a call because I'm getting one heck of a rifle for the price I'll list all I had done for 2200.00 then you can shop around but it's hard to beat what Mike can do for 2200.00.
I suplied the action.
Krieger Stainless #17 barrel,8.5-Twist,28"
Fluted(8 Flutes)
Action Trued.
Tubb recoil lu pinned.
Vais Arms Brake.
Barreled action bead blasted.
Mcmillan mold in camo A-3 W/Integral Adj.
Pillar&Glass bedded
Jewell Trigger.
Speed Lock fireing pin.
Badger Ordnance Bolt knob.
All metal finished in OD-green by Birdsong.
Rem700 BDL Kit.
Bolt flutted(except where the shells make contact.

She's going to be sweet I can't wait for it to get here.Good luck on your project.

SMACK!!!!
