I wouldn't argue that it is easy to load for but when someone is trying to figure out which cartridge their build is going to be based off of people should give them solid facts on the pros and cons. Telling someone that they are going to waste two barrels finding a load for a 260 while you are still on the first 6.5x47L barrel is a little off.
Realistically when you are talking about building a 6.5x47L or a 260, you can't go wrong with either choice. It would just be a personal preference because there isn't that much difference between the two.
