Now I'm swearing at myself. I have been trying to avoid the contention that it seems I could not keep out of by not posting here, but I have to relent as I know I can get the answer I need here (and the Go go Varmint go message board has been down!).
I have a couple of questions relating to the 6.5 Remington and 6.5-284.
One is case capacity for both.
Two goes like this:
I do not have one source for load data to compare both cartridges in terms of velocity. What I have seen tends to favor the 6.5-284 a fair amount, but I am skeptical especially since the Remmington is belted. So the question is how velocity compares.
It is more for curiosity and to make a thoroughly informed descision than anything as I fully intend on going with the 6.5-284, but I like the peace of mind knowing that I considered all factors.
Velocity is not a heavily weighted criteria for me, just trying to reconcile what little I am able to find.
