I have built several because they will fit in a short action and are almost the same as the 6.5 284
in a long action in performance.
They have a reputation for being in accurate in the Remington version but that was because of the
short barrel and vented rib that caused it to wander as it warmed up.
Replaced with a good 24 to 26" custom barrel they will shoot lights out like the 6.5 284.
With the short action and a light weight barrel #4 or #5 contour thew make great pack rifles
with more than enough power for Elk size game.
I have even though about moving the shoulder from 25o to 37.5o to see if I could increase the performance and brass life.
