You could squeeze the 260 in a short but both would be better in a long action to allow a longer seating depth.. I'm shooting a 6.5. Creedmoor with an elite iron supressor it's a dream. Very little recoil. I wouldn't have a problem taking antelope sized critters at 800 or more with 140 bergers. The heavy 6.5's are dam impressive in the BC department.
Excellent advice! I may take a look at the Creedmoor.
