Here is some info I just looked up.
Hey! I'm not trying to put down the Creedmoor. It's great to, but Ammo is so easily available for the 260. In this video (must be older) they form brass. Since Lapua, nosler and norma all have brass and it seems to be everywhere - at least the nosler is.
Check the price on some decent match ammo for the 260 then look at the 6.5 creedmoor. I recently took a buddy out and ran his new 6.5 CM over the magneto speed
. SD was about 10fps according the magneto speed if I remember right. That's darn good for factory hornady loads with 140 gr Amax at ~$28 a box of 20. Cheapest you get in the 260 is the Federal gold medal at ~$38. I believe Nosler has announced they will be making 6.5 CM here shortly so brass choice in getting better.
