    Cracker shot, that's one caliber I haven't had but think it would be pretty good.

    It was fashionable when I had it built, itís popularity promoted by its success in F-Class shooting competitions at the time. Like anything fashionable it seems to be surpassed by other calibers lately.

    None the less itís my favourite rifle, it just happens to be a .284.

    Yeh I think with a shortened barrel, suppressor with a 150- 160 class bullet at 2750-2800 they would have plenty of knockdown. Ideal for bush hunting and for when the longer shot presents itself on a slip or up a long river bed.

    You know it! You should fully convert to .284 WIN :-)

    I eventually found my 7mm Rem Mag to be too long to carry comfortably.

    The shockwave is one of the more dramatic that you’ll see...
