6.5x284 compared to the 7mm rem mag

How dose the 6.5x284 compare to the 7mm mag I've got a 7 mag would I gain any thing or would I lose out by switching to the 6.5x284 I don't know much about the 6.5 x284 and I was hopping that some of you guys could help me I will mainly be hunting with this rifle at ranges from 100 to 600 yrds and anything from bobcat to elk

    I have 2 7mm Rem Mags and one 6.5-284 Norma. I like both. Since you mention elk, stick with the 7. Both are barrel burners but the 6.5 is worse.
