I have never shot a 6.5x284, just sat near one when they were shooting. I have a 6.5x47L and it uses a lot less powder to get the same results. My rifle shoots a 1" group at 400 yds. and recoil is negligible. The problem is you have to have one made for you. And you have to reload. My longest kill was 800 Yds. on a coyote. And longest big game was 600 yds. on an Elk. But that was with a 700rem.mag. I have since learned that you do not have to take that kick to get the results. 260 Rem. will do the job.
