6.5-284 Win vs Norma


I'm in the process of building a 6.5-284. I purchased a Rem 700 action yesterday and am planning on ordering a Broughton 5c 1:8 barrel soon. Can someone explain to me the difference between the 6.5-284 Winchester and the 6.5-284 Norma? Is it just a difference in neck tolerences?

My local gunsmith has made a number of 65-284's but all chambered to saami specs. He will make whatever I want but I would have to buy the reamer. I am still somewhat of a newbie at this so I am also wondering if I should go with the saami specs and a s-bushing die or have a more customized/tight throat and turn the necks. The uses of this gun will be split between hunting and competition. I've been shooting pistols competitavly for a while but am just getting in to competitave rifle shooting. There is so much to learn...

Win has a smaller web diameter ~.496 v .500 for the lapua/norma.

I have a lapua reamer with a .294 neck if you are interested in renting it.

Shoot me an email if interested.
