My son is thinking of getting one built. He asked me how long an action to use. I said that with the long action he would have more options as to how far out to set the bullet. Was I right? It would probably be put on a Remington 700 action. Another question, would the 6.5/284 be a better choice? He will use it as a long range coyote gun and possibly for mule deer. He always liked the fast calibers. Darrel

6 x 284 or 6.5 x 284

I own both built on the Remington and the 6.5 is on a 243 action and the 6.5 is on a 30-06 action. I like the longer action because bullet length and seating and hand feeding single rounds is easier. That's just my 2 cents worth.

if repeter the LA would be better .the 6.5 would be hard to beat on mule deer to.
