I wouldn't let that stop me from owning a .284 if you wanted one.

You win!

@Nathan,

The Wolfe spring kit lowers the trigger pull weight. Also has a stiffer firing pin spring.
That & some judicial honing nets me a crisp trigger at 2lb.

So wait....
If i'm reading the previous posts correctly, your telling us that the greater case capacity of a 280AI over a 284Win is going to give you longer barrel life?

And it's still NOT a 7mm Rem Mag!
If you throw up velocities equalling one with the 280AI, i'd say one of 2 things.
1) Calling BS!
2) Your loading it stupidly, dangerously over pressure!

My impression of the 284 win is that when it was introduced it was not really intended to handle the yet-to-be developed heavier/higher BC bullets; so shorter COLs and slower twist barrels hampered it's competitiveness on the market initially. Once wildcatters figured out that if you take away the COL limitations and make a faster twist to stabilize bigger bullets--it is in fact an excellent base cartridge. But that's just my take on it.

What really hampered it's introduction is the firearms Winchester introduced it in.
A lever action & a semi auto.
Had they introduced it in their Model 70, with a shorter throat, i think it would have caught on better.

Then some idiot gun rag writer was trying to compare it the 270 Win with non existant bullets for the 270 & saying it offers no gain.

Took F-Class shooters using it in the form of the 6.5-284 for it to catch on.
