Just for info I also load for the 284 and 6.5 284 last night I took a look at my compitition seater I use for my 284 win and tried it out on the 25 -284 couldnt believe it . 00 run out no where on that compitition die does it say 284 so I guess it will work with any 284 parent case that is a redding die
Good to know. Thanks

If you decide on the 6/284 there is no rule that says the case has to be completely full of powder.Slow it down or run it hot ,your choice.

6 creedmoor is a lot of fun and shoots with most Bullets and powders and I talking 1 hole at 200 yards from a bench and everything inside the nine ring or 10 ring shooting prone I built mine before hornady had ammunition for it

Why not a .243 ackley improved fast twist should be dandy
Why go through the hassle of fire forming brass for negligible gains when there is factory and good brass support for the 6 creed? By the time you stuff a 108-115 in a 243ai it either won't run out of a short action or is so far in the powder that those gains are muted to run in a short action.
Same goes for the 22 creed and 22-243ai or 22-250ai. There's quality headstamped no fire form no custom die creedmoor cartridges that will do all the things these now obsolete wildcats will do

No man-bun here either.
Yet I love my 6CM.
105 Hyb @ 3186fps from a 24" 1:7.5" or 115 VLD @ 3087fps, both suppressed. I shoot steel out to 1500 with it, and have taken pronghorn at 460 and coyotes out to 910.
Super light recoil, feeds slick from an Accurate mag, accurate, good brass availability, SRP or LRP, and enough horsepower for medium game out to 600-700+.

for the fun of it last year i rebarreled a new Savage varmint rifle with a Brux barrel ,7 1/2 twist , 7 contour chambered in a 25 Creedmoor i call 257 Creedmoor it shoots very accurate with 128 gr. Hammer bullets and 135 gr. Berger bullets also, this rifle also likes 115 gr. Nosler B.T. . so here`s another option for you ? good luck , Twolf
