It would be easier to find parts to build the bolt rifle and brass is cheaper/more available for 6.5x55. Not to mention, I already reload for some swede rifles. Decisions decisions.
Of course you can also have the best of both worlds and build an AR in .260 Rem.
The New .260 AR
This was the first target I shot with it after an abbreviated break in.
Twenty rounds in under 5 minutes.
Not bad, all tolled I have under 2k in it excluding the scope.
I did a summer make over on it so if I get time I'll post some updated pictures next week.
