Re: Best long range round. 6.5 creed, .260, 6.5x284, or 6mm br?
Another +1 for the savage and .260. I also have a savage lrp .260 that I get 2860 fps and shoots in the .3s with berger 140hvld bullets. By comparison a lot of the 6.5x284 s I see shoot +/- 2950 fps with the same length barrel but with more powder. I went .260 because it was way easier to find on the shelf than the other options if for some reason I lost my reloads. It's hard to go wrong with any of these options. Something to keep in mind is 6.5x284 is a long action based cartridge vs the others being on a short action.
