I don't see why 260 fans get all wound up when somebody mentions the Creedmoor. The 6.5 Swede is still around so why did we need a 260? Everybody loves new stuff. To justify a new cartridge you have to have a reason, and that has been given in the posts above. 260 is geared to hunters, and Creedmoor is geared to benchrest shooters.

As for the Ruger V/T, I have it in the 6.5 Creedmoor. I have fired it 7 times, and that was clean-shoot-clean-shoot... The trigger is OK. There is a slight bit of creep and the gun is new. It may get better, or a 'smith may have to take a look. The creep is minor, but it could be better. There is no obvious overtravel, and I like the 2-stage idea. I haven't had it out of the wood, but Ruger recommends not adjusting the trigger, and there is no instruction so I don't know if there is a way to adjust it or not. Aside from that, I like the gun so far, especially for the price.
