Re: 6.5/284 long or short action?
ok here is all the answers u want.u can use the short action BUT it wont be able to eject a live round with out u removing the bolt..partialy..u wont be able to use the mag.but u said u were going to single feed any way.that is all u have to worry about the thing is that a 6.5-284 seated out is longer than a 308 but shorter than a 30-06....thats how mine is with a 140g sierra match king. i use the long action because that is what i was advised to use. but if i were to have a second chance at it i would have never used the long action.
