I saw a post on Xtreme where a fellow asked if anyone had any experience with a 270-284norma round. Has anyone tried this combination using the 6.5-284 Norma case as the starting point?

Curious to know how the velocities and accuracy compares to the 270 Weatherby or 270WSM.

Thanks,

Best I did with my 270 wsm in a Mod 70 winchester Coyote at williamsport was 18 inches worst was off the paper.
Saw a 300 WSM in heavy gun shoot a 6 inch group there. In fact I have that target hanging in my basement. There just isn't enough Bullet selection for a 270 to do. Just my 2 cents.

I agree with you but for 500 yards hunting 270 WSM is very fine

good shooting

284 win hold 06 water capacity so 270/284 even with more fatter case will be in thes ame as a good 270 WIN

if you can ( mag lenght ) stay in 284 Win case lenght , 270 WSM is a real challenger of the 270 Wea with more commun rifle ( WIN 70 ) and very good ammo

only problem to reach top performance is barrel lenght make case shorter and fatter is nice but cut down barrel lenght is seely for balistic performance

good shooting

Thanks guys. If anyone has tried this combo, I'd like to hear from them.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
