Savage 6.5x284

I have been considering in getting into the 6.5 game.

I have been looking at the idea of getting the Savage 110 Preadtor in 6.5x284.

Does anyone have any experinece with this model?
What are your pros and cons about the gun?
24in barrel or should ya get a 26in?

I have been around a few Savage's in 22-250 and they seem to shoot well if you spend the time developing the load. Can I expect this in the 6.5.

Also, Not a fan on the camo stock. What are the possiblities of putting a different stock on it? I have heard you can't replace an accustock.


How do Berger 140 grainers perform in this gun?

Thanks for the help

    You won't be able to maximize your velocity with only a 24 inch barrel, but It will most likely be extremely accurate.
