I have an AICS stock and a Stiller Tac300 long action with a .308 bolt sitting in my safe.
I can‘t decide on what caliber to choose.
This project started with the 284 winchester in mind(with a 175 sierra bullet or 180gr Berger)
In the mean time, I bought an AIAW in .260 Rem.
Now i wonder if the .284 winch is of real advantage over the .260?
If not maybe I should move to a different caliber.
Secondly, I was thinking about one of the 300 or 338(RUM,Edge,...) with a magnum bolt on the same platform (AICS LA and Stiller Tac300) that will allow me to reach longer distance (1500 meters).
Caliber choice is difficult because i want to use the AICS mag.
Max oal is 3,6"
Thanks for your help

If it was me I would stick to your original idea. I have shot the barrels out of 3 260s and have started on my 4th and love the round. However its not in the same class as a 284 or even a 6.5x284.
If you want to shoot past 1000+yds then go with a magnum but remember your barrel life will be short and recoil will be harsh. If your mostly going to be shooting to 1000 or less the 284 is the way to go its your choice.
