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...)
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.
