Due to the packaging and shipping process, case necks are often slightly dinged or bent and need to be rounded up and sized to give proper neck tension. New and/or fired cases must be full-length resized or have the expander ball of the sizing die run through the case neck prior to loading.

Product Information

All 50 count listings of Peterson Cartridge casings come in one of their plastic ammo boxes.

Made in the U.S.A.

Introduced by Norma in 1999, the 6.5-284 Norma is a standardized 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.” 

Warning: Only use Peterson Cartridge Co. casings in firearms in good condition, designed, marked, and chambered for this cartridge. Do not use Peterson Cartridge Co casings for “fire forming” or any other purpose other than what they were designed and tested for. Peterson retains no responsibility for the enclosed casings if they are used outside of the manufacturer’s recommendations. 

This is not loaded ammunition.

Peterson brass

By JOE N. on Oct 26, 2020
The Peterson 6.5-284 Norma brass that I ordered and received is outstanding. I prepped the brass for reloading. It was received in pristine condition and when I prepped it, all of the rounds were consistent, weight is uniform, no dents, neck turning revealed uniform neck circumference prior to turning. Peterson is my go to brass of choice. I have reloaded and shot Peterson brass in other calibers and the performance has always met or exceeded my expectations.

Also, during the brass prepping process an expander mandrel should be used prior to resizing the brass or the die may crush the neck of the brass.
