I'm kind of looking for somthing that might take it's place. my smith is not to keen on the .284 ( he don't have the newer short throat reamer) what about a 7x57 ackley? anybody now anything about it?
That was my 1st wildcat many years ago 7x57AI loaded OL is 3.065" alittle long for the Rem short action may need a Wyatt magazine would also work for the 284. You can buy new bolt for the WSM from Pacific sell the old one do a 7WSM,7-08. With the good brass now for the 6.5x284 necking it up to 7mm be easy. I have a pretty good gunsmith that does my work and I value his judgement but if I wanted a 284 he build one for me.
