I have a pre-64 Winchester 257rob with a spacer in it, 6.5x284 Norma is the way I went and I glad I did after hearing about the feeding problems with the creedmoor !!!
I made the same decision (but for various other reasons).
It's still in work, but my 6.5-284 Norma will be built on a standard length action. I don't want to be limited by the magazine length of a short action. I'd rather use a spacer in the standard (.30-06 length) magazine, than constantly beat my head against the wall because I want more COAL but can't get it.

Speaking of which... I need to call and order the barrel today. It's the last piece of the puzzle. (Action, dies, brass, bullets, and loaded ammo are already sitting here, just waiting...)
