The 6.5X.284 appears to be slightly superior to the 6.5-06.
It is equal to the .270W... But superior in some ways.
It takes advantage of the far superior 6.5mm bullets.
With the Norma version providing even better results.
And it is right on the heels of the .264 Win Mag.
Several things people never think about when comparing it to the .270W.
Is that although both have very similar performance out to 300 yards.
This is where the Higher BC 6.5mm bullets really start to show their advantage.
Another advantage never mentioned, is the standard 160g bullets, far heavier than the heaviest normally available in the .270W.
Although a round nose bullet, this bullet should allow you to cleanly take far heavier game.
