This rings true to me. I had a 6.5-284 and loved it. 3015 with 140 Bergers in lapua brass out of a long action and 26” tube with h1000 backed off of pressure signs to the node just below. Then the PRC came along and I held out as long as I could. 3030 with 156 Berger’s, out of a short action with a 22 inch tube, ADG brass and h1000 at the node just below pressure signs. Point of impact was identical to 143 ELDx factory ammo at 200. I had found a new love and the 6.5-284 had to go. Turned it into a 6-284 and I had another new love .So many PRC haters claim it doesn’t do anything the 6.5-284 doesn’t. Lol. Try running a 6.5-284 in a SA with a 24” barrel. Heck the PRC outruns the 284 version in SA and 24” even with the 6.5-284 in a LA with a 26” barrel.
