The .284 Winchester is one of a number of
useful cartridges that should have proven to be extremely successful but
didn't. Introduced by Winchester in 1963, the .284 was designed to squeeze
Remington performance from the new Model 100 autoloader and Model 88
lever action rifles.
In order to squeeze such performance from a cartridge short enough to feed through those rifles, Winchester engineers designed the .284 case with a rebated rim and a body almost as large in diameter as that of the belted magnum case. The end result was a 7mm cartridge with about the same overall length as the .308 Winchester but with the powder capacity about the same as that of the .270 Winchester and .280 Remington. Any difference in performance between the three cartridges is the stuff pointless debates are made of.
At one time the Savage Model 99 was available in .284 Winchester, and Ruger produced a small run of Model 77 rifles in this caliber. Surprisingly enough, Ultra Light Arms now builds more Model 20 rifles in .284 Winchester than all other calibers combined. Which probably tells us that only those high country hunters who are willing to pay for a 4-1/2 pound sheep rifle appreciate what the .284 Winchester has to offer.
For open country hunting of deer and pronghorn, the .284 loaded with the Speer 130 grain spitzer at 3100 fps will do anything the .270 will do and it will do it in a short action rifle. Larger game calls for bullets weighing from 150 to 160 grains. H4831, H450, H4350, H414, IMR-4350, and IMR-4831 are excellent powders for the .284 Winchester.
