Which .284 build?

Greetings all, first post.

I have a new .284 Shilen match SS #5 barrel and would like to build a new rifle.
Original plan was 280Rem.

In your opinion, which rifle would you "sacrifice" for the new .284 L/A build?
I have the choice of: 30-06, 270Win or 7mm Mag. All straight factory Rem700 rifles.

Which cambering? again I was thinking 280Rem, but would like to hear others opinions.

Original thought was to"sacrifice" the 7mm Mag
(Modifying the bolt face is not a concern)

I have the brass, bullets & dies for all, including the possible future 280rem (NOT AI).

Building for SC deer rifle, but would also like to hit gongs @ 100 - 600yds.

(I posted on another forum, but got little response)

I would build off whatever gun is closest to your new chambering. I would get rid of the 7 rem and go for a 7 WSM or 7 Dakota.

I'd scrap the .270 Win.....And chamber to .280 Ackley Improved.

Why would he do that when it's much easier to build and find brass for a 7mm STW.

Re: Which .284 build?

I'm not a fan of belted cases. So I would recommend a smooth case.

I like my 284 Winchester rifles but have only shot my M88. Waiting on the stock for the single shot.

So

If it were me I'd use the 270 to make a 284.

just curious why you would choose using the 270 vs 30-06 or 7mm?
