Re: opinions needed
6.5-284 gets my vote. More pop than .243, heavier & higher BC bullets, 1K yard hunting capabilities, and it's ballistically superior to the .243.
Don't get me wrong, .243 in a great round, but I wouldn't shoot at a deer more than 500 yards away with one. Lots of folks have shot deer out to 1K with a 6.5-284.
