Will a .308 bolt face work for a .284 case or should I use a magnum bolt face?

again that's the wrong question to ask...... its not an either or question' the measurement is .473 standard bolt face nothing magnum about a measurement...

a question worth asking is should you build a .284 on a short action or long....

Correct, We typically do long actions for the .284/ 6.5-284

You assume I haven't already decided which action I prefer or if I care at all.

Yes.

It would be called a 7mm-08 in a short action. It would be called a 284 Win or 280 Rem in a long action. It would be called a 7 Rem Mag on a long action, magnum bolt face (.540")

All will push the same exact bullet. You pick the bullet, you decide how fast you want it to go, you decide how much recoil you're willing to tolerate.

That what you were looking for?

284 Winchester uses the same bolt face as a host of cartridges 22-250, 308 Winchester, 30-06.....

Most rifles in the past for the 284 Winchester are on short actions like used for the 308. These days most custom guns for it are long action so the bullet may be seated out further to take up less powder room.

SAAMI specs for US cartridges can be found at

What are you planning on shooting. I went against the grain and built a 284 on a short action. 162 Amax netted me 2900 out of a 26" barrel. So it can be done effectively.

Shoot I'm not! I like having a bigger case I can put a compressed load in. I got the .2 extra second to cycle it.
