I do handload but buy ammo of about 3 different breeds.. 6.5 Creed for a friend...260 for me and 6BR for myself. You can load a 6.5 Creed a little more, but the diff doesnt amount to Jack Squat.
6.5 Creed...100gr slug.....40.5 gr of Varget....3122 fps @ 60K pressure
260 Rem...100 gr slug...39.5 gr of Varget.....3025 fps and 58.9 PSI
