Re: my new Mauser .284
284 Win. is a great cartridge. Developed by Winchester as their answer to high velocity 7mm round in a short action. Its a rebated rim round, the body is fatter than the case head. In 1963, it was hot stuff. Although it never acheived great status, the case plays host to some of the best wildcat cartridges of the past 50 years. A little heavy for varmints, but it will do a fantastic job, probably what it was built for way back when.
