Introduced by Norma in 1999, the 6.5-284 Norma is a standardised version of a concept that gunsmiths and wildcat fans have been doing for years.  The story began in 1963, when Winchester introduced a new rebated head cartridge that combined the case head of a .30-06 sized cartridge with the fatter body of a belted magnum, resulting in a short action powerhouse known as the .284 Winchester.  Soon thereafter wildcatters began to use it as a blank canvas to create several new cartridges over the next few decades.  It wasn’t until 1999 when Norma submitted a 6.5 mm version with a 35-degree shoulder and an overall case length of 2.170” that the 6.5-284 became readily available.  It quickly became a favorite among long-range shooters due to a combination of case capacity, accuracy, and comparatively low recoil.

“We decided to develop the tooling to produce the 6.5-284 Norma based on the success and popularity of that cartridge in the 600 and 1,000-yard Benchrest and F Class communities” Peterson Cartridge president Derek Peterson said.  “We want to provide our customers more options in our lineup of long-range cartridges and the 6.5-284 is a logical choice for those who want to launch high B.C. 6.5mm bullets at speeds in excess of 2,900 fps.” 

All Peterson Cartridge Company brass is annealed and final cleaned before leaving the factory and comes packaged in a heavy-duty plastic ammo box.
