Same. There are only 4 very subtle differences in the case its self, and a sizing die will fix them all in one very simple pass. There is nothing special you have to do with the winchester version than the Norma. I still believe Lapua or Norma is the best brass. But I personally use Hornady brass, because I have had good results from it at lower cost.

The 6.5x284norma is just the SAAMI spec chambering of the 6.5x284win, norma made it a standard cartridge so it got the norma designation, but the die sets are the same. Typically the norma chamber has a longer throat because it was meant for a long action and a lot of the 6.5x284win's were built on short actions. 100 pieces of lapua brass will easily shoot out your barrel if treated right as will the norma cases.
