It sounds like youre pretty well sold on the 260 Rem. And so was I until very recently. I've been doing nothing but research for a great long distance, low recoil caliber and was about to pull the trigger on the Savage 12 LRP in 260. But the recent results from the Sniper's Hide Shootout, and recent videos and threads have really opened my eyes to the incredible performance from the 6.5 Creedmoor...IN FACTORY AMMO! Not only did the 6.5 Creed take top honors and runner up at Sniper's Hide, (it also placed 4th and 7th) but both shooters did so with factory loaded hornady ammo! That got my attention real fast. And i started looking for everything and anything related to this caliber. I found videos of a couple guys shooting out in the deserts of Nevada at incredible ranges for what i thought was a 1000yd limited caliber. This guy was shooting his at 1 mile...ACCURATELY. His buddies .308Win couldn't make a solid hit at this range but the Creedmoor did it twice. I know exactly what I'm about to purchase, a Savage 12LRP in 6.5 Creedmoor!
