6.5 Creedmoor vs. .260 Remingotn

Okay I know this topic has been beat to death and there are many other forums regarding this topic. I have read most to all of them. Just wanting some fresh opinions on the topic. I am basically looking for load data comparisons. Also, will be running magazines on my future rifle. I have read the Creed is a better for that. Please give me your 2 cents on this! Whatever you think I would appreciate it! Thanks for reading !!

Also for my build I was going to use a Krieger 1:8 Twist. And a 28 Inch Barrel. Give me your opinions on the barrel length and choice of barrel maker ! Thanks alot guys !

I would get the Creed. I just like the way it sounds. My 6.5-284 is a just a 6.5 to me. So if it were me, Creed all the way. I would tell my kid to grab the Creed and 6.5 from the safe and let's go hunting. Then again I named my 6.5 Arte'mis. (Arteemis) the greek huntress god. ha ha good luck

I don't own either. I looked at them a bit when I was planning a build, and the correct answer is whichever ammunition, and quality components are the most readily available to you.
