Re: 1000 Yard Gun - .260 vs 6.5 Creedmoor
For me it's the same as the 375 Ruger Alaskan deal. I like the round because of the rifle it comes in.
Perhaps I'll be able to get the VT model before spring.
I would have been just as happy with the 260 if it was in the rifle I wanted.
From what I've read the 6.5x284 is about 1,000 rounds before a barrel change. Thats not acceptable to me. And I don't need that much speed. New snow machines are spendy, and I need one to get into good wolf country. Kinda limits my rifle budjet. So a factory rifle is the most economical. For me.
The advertising was that the Creed fixed the problems that the 260 had. .I don't know if it did or not. But I sure like mine.
