Tim, If you are referring to the one that Chance_livewire has listed, he says it is a 6mmx284. I know this doesn't make a difference with your caution since they use the same case, but just wanted to clarify that it is the 6mm not 6.5mm.

I have looked at the ad more than a few times. It is not a cartridge I need. But that hasn't stopped me before (spoken in true Handiholic fashion). It is a good price for what you are getting, barrel, dies & brass. I had better stop before I go look at the ad again. ::)

Yeah, I forgot it was a 6mm actually, just remembered there was a -284 there, that's doing good for my rememberer. :-[ ;D

6.5-06 might work better in a single shot.
Right between the 25-06 and 270. Both work trouble free in a handi.
The 284s whole reason for being was to get compete with the 270 in a short action.
You don't have any action length so why risk the large case head causing problems.
