I know exactly what you mean. It seems like I can't get anything done anymore. Yeah there's just way too much going on all the time.
I do have some 6.5-284 rifles but this one isn't one of Them. I picked this one up as a practice rifle for long range shooting. It's just a plain Jane 308. She won't be fast with super high by bullets but I will be able to run a truckload of ammo though it before burning the barrel out.
Also, if you're practicing with an ultra high BC bullet doing 3000 FPS you're not getting near the practice at reading wind and weather conditions as you could be. And if you're shooting a gun like that be ready to chase those lands and buy new barrels.
I use my 6.5-284 for hunting and guns like this and my mosin for practice. I feel it makes me a better shooter.
