Re: 6.5x284 equilvent

Thanks
I have not seen that. I have a .270 Win Savage 112. Very nice gun.... nice wood and very accurate for a non custom gun. I guess I know what the next gun will be.
Thanks
Ken

Buy a stevens 300 mag for $300.00 and order a 6.5 rem mag for $175.00 from er shaw. this will beat the 6.5x284

Or buy a stevens 25-06 order a 6.5x284.
either way you only have $475.00 in the gun you want

Hello Ken,

Savage has a long range hunting rifle that is so new you can't even find it listed on their catalog yet. It will be a laminated stocked long heavy barrelled weapon and will probably have a lot in common with their other competition 6.5 x 284's. Don't look for an alternate caliber. There is a good reason this caliber is so popular for long range target shooting: its very easy to load for , the recoil is minimal compared to its heavier competition and the long 140 grain bullets resists wind and seem to have extra long range punch all out of porportion to its diameter.

Thank,
My local dealer complains that Savage is not filling orders for much of anything.
He has on stainless .270 in accutrigger/stock. If I didn't have a accutrigger .270 I would get it.
I would love to have a 6.5x284 in the accutrigger/stock package but, I told him if a .308 comes in he better call ME first.
Merry Christmas
Ken

If I had the money I would have this ordered the second it is possible, should be a couple hundred less if you have a good dealer. In that long action you would be able to seat the 140's out real nice.
The 270 WSM will run with 6.5 rather well but I understand wanting a 6.5, I need one too but can't justify it with a 270 WSM that run so close to it.
