I think I'm gonna' put one together. Long story short, I don't have anything in .257 caliber, and I have been kicking around the idea of building something. I don't want something that just everybody has like a .25-06 or .250 Savage or .257 Roberts or .257 Weatherby. I finally settled on the .25-284 and looked into converting a Savage 110 in .270 that I already have. I discovered that E.R. Shaw makes a replacement barrel for the Savage 110 in .25-284, but their lead time is about four months! I've been looking around elsewhere, but haven't found another option yet. If any of you have any other ideas, or if you have played with a .25-284 and have some favorite loads or other advice to offer, I'm all ears!
