6.5 wsm question

I know this caliber is still pretty new as a wildcat, but I was wondering if anybody has seen any advantage to it over the 6.5-284 or .264 winmag. Will it do anything that can't be done already?

It has more capacity for slower powders. W/longer barrels you can go right by em.

Re: 6.5 wsm question

Was looking for a 6.5 no belt that would send a bullet to a mile.Was considering the 6.5Gibbs or 6.5-284 but found a good smith with a 6.5WSM reamer that could get it done soon.Norma is makeing 270WSM brass and it is a fairly simple convertion(once you figure it out;-)
