Default 284 Winchester ammo

I just traded for a Browning Blr in 284 Winchester. I can't find any ammo for this gun. Does anyone know where I can purchase some? I got 2 boxes with the gun, I would like to buy 3-4 more. Thank You for any help that you can give me.

Winchester is the only company to ever commercially produce the .284. The cartridge was a market failure. It is a great cartridge for short actions if you are a handloader. The .284 is a rebated rimmed case so it is difficult to make from other available brass.
Check Gun Broker and Ableammo Web pages.

Seasonal run ammo- and you may not see it this season due to production of other ammo. Usual suspects are out of stock. Check gunbroker and auctionarms

One time I passed up on buying a .250 Savage because I could not find ammo...

Later on, the seasonal run of .250 Savage ammo came about and the ammo was then easy to find.

I belatedly realized that I had made a mistake, and should have bought that nice little .250 Savage that I had been looking at.

YMMV
