So I have been reading some things lately and would like some opinions. This is more for informational purposes verses needing info for a build. Though any information would benefit any reader considering either caliber.
I was reading on Accurateshooter.com today about the Snipers Hide Cup in Texas (Match Report: 2011 Sniper’s Hide Cup in Texas « Daily Bulletin
). The winner and runner up were both using the 6.5 Creedmore with factory Hornady ammo. I know there was and is a .260 Rem craze and wondering what the real difference is. I have noticed that both seem to be ballistic twins, but why would one be more attractive than the other? I know for me right now the 260 would be the better option due to brass selection, but you can't knock the fact that this caliber performed well and even using factory ammo.
According to this article they had to shoot to 1000yds and at times in 24mph gusting winds. So this proves the capability of the caliber (6.5mm/.264"). But what about the cartridge? What say you?
