Re: 6.5x284 barrel length
I´m about to receive my 6,5-284 with a 26 " barrel.
With a 24 barrel and up to the distance you talk about, I would give the 6,5 x 55 swede a thought.. you got the long action, lapua brass available, can shoot heavy for caliber bullets and a bit more power than the 260 rem. Long barrel life also. A bit more??? 6,5 x 55 AI
