Hello all, I am going to build a 6.5/284 Norma, using a 240 Wby Mag MK 5 ultralight action w / existing composite stock. Douglas Barrels is going to install a 26" premium XX barrel for me. I plan on using the rifle as a hunting rifle, shooting 143 gr. ELDX or 140 gr. ELDM's most likely. Would like to have the option of possibly using the 155 gr. bullets that are currently available by others. My question is for you guys out there that are handloading for this caliber - what is the magazine length that you are using ? My current mag length will allow for a SAMMI length load plus about a 1/4".
