As the author said about the 6.5x284...................."It isn't a true short action cartridge"............and in fact, for most action makes, it will require a long action. The rebated rim means feeding requires a good mag follower and spring, and often a magazine block to shorten the mag of a long action so cartridges don't tilt. Don't let the spring get weak on this one. .....So if you need a long action anyway..... and especially if you want to reload..........choose a different round. The .264 bullets are the real deal so...........go with the 6.5 06AI. It out performs the Norma, can be made from 06 or 270 brass, needs no magazine block, and feeds slick as bacon fat.....FWB

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
