I was going to steal the remington action out of my 7stw sendero for the build but am having second thoughts on breaking down a gun that shoots so well. Another reason I am wanting to stay with the 284 caliber is because of the high BC of the berger bullets. The rest of my build will be a schillen match select barrel not sure on length yet but prob 28, stiller predator action, mcmillan a5 stock and a jewel trigger. What is your opinion? Thank you
Curious as to why you don't like your 6.5X284 for deer hunting? It should lay them down. Is it not barreled with a fast enough twist or something?

Re: Rifle build help

No it should be and is fine for deer hunting. I just like a cartridge with a little more horse power. JUst personal preference. I have shot deer with everything from a 243 to a 300 mag. The larger calibers just seem to be much more effective at longer distances to me. But dont get me wrong I love my 6.5 and it is very accurate.
