260 vs. 6.5-284 Whats the difference?

I mean velocity wise and case differences, accuracy and advantages of one over the other.
I was considering rebarreling my 300wm in favor for a LR cartridge with less recoil. My 300wm though 12# still beats me up to bad and I'm not interested in braking it.

Also would the 6.5 (140gr.) recoil less than the .308 (175gr.)? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]

    308,

    To rebarrel that 300wm your going to have to get a bushing put on the boltface and that cost alot of $$$$, the 260 in the same lenght barrel will run about 200fps slower, but you can get 2800/2900 out of a long barrel, 30+", both have good components availible, but the 260 will cost a bit less to start reloading for, as for accuracy I dont think you will find a differance between the two, the 260 will last a bit longer for match grade accuracy, As for recoil, im running 140's in my 16.5lb match gun at 2850fps, and recoils like a 223.

    you could do a 6.5 WSM or WSSM on the 300WM bolt face [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Not a bad question.

    Here is a picture I took that might add a little something:
