Whats it worth and what can you tell me?

I have a older Winchester Model 100 .284 that used to be my Dads. It is in really good condition but has been used. I have searched around a little bit and what I can gather is that the .284 Cal was a round that was supposed to be a "best of both worlds" type round but it never really got going.

Do they still make ammo for this gun (I assume they do but might be a bit pricey)? If you know anything that might be good or not common knowledge about this rifle that would be helpfull also.

Thanks

pre-64 (pre 1964) Winchesters are worth a lot.

.284 is somewhat rare anymore, but the brass is getting new life on bench rest scene as a 6.5-284. Basically a necked down .284(7mm) to 6.5mm.

It's a great cartridge, just never caught on.

Do a Google search and you can enter the serial number to see what year it was built.

www.gunsamerica.com

Good places to see prices.

Looks like it was built in 1962. Thanks for the info!
