Alot of .284 fans out there. Should I assume you are referring to the infamous 6.5x284?

Can't speak for everyone but I know that I mean a straight .284. the 6.5X284 just isn't big enough to Kill larger game at great distances. the staight .284 shoots the same speeds with a higher B.C. as the 6.5X284 but does it with 40 more grains of bullet weight.
