Ruger is chambering their Mod.77 Hawkeye in 6.5 Creedmoor (if you can find one) and the TC Icon is also chambered for it.

    Winchester has a beauty in the 6.5 target series. laminate stock / SS Bull barrel 28".....I have also been looking at this caliber but you definitly have to reload if you are going with the 6.5....Not many off the shelf rounds available

    I'd say go for it. I don't own one, but i've shot several of my friends and they all are very accurate rifles/rounds. They have a pretty decent bullet selection with high BC's. I think I'd choose the creedmoor over the 260 just off case design itself. Not that the 260 or other cartridges are bad, it just seems to have a better design. By that I'm talking about shoulder angle, neck length and case tapper, just seems more efficient. You could look at the 6.5 Super L/R also it's basically the same round.

    There is another option you may want to consider. Build a 6x47 lapua. Simply neck down the 6.5, and have the great selection of 6mm bullets if that is what you want. I have heard a lot of good things about this round.

    I shoot a 6x47 and love it. I've killed deer out to 750 with it and steel out to 1100. Shooting a 105 berger around 2850 fps.

    I was attracted to the 6.5 CM but ended up going with the 260Rem. Availability of brass at the time, and I'm not a fan of Hornady brass. Just me. No regrets at all.
