    I have two in 708. A montana and a hunter.
    Was my intention to ream the hunter to 284 but wasnt sure there was enough meat in there.

    NO

    It is "nice" to have plenty of metal left around the outside of the chamber & the action, more is definitely more in this case.

    The Kimber 84 has a small diameter action & thread tenon, better suited to 308 & smaller diameter cases.

    Increasing the diameter of the case increases the surface area exposed to pressure & decreases the chamber wall thickness.

    Effectively a double whammy.
