Factory 260 or creedmoor

I'm considering getting a savage 11 th xp in either 260 or 6.5 creed. I want to shoot 130 grain bullets and will be hand loading. My main concern is which one of the factory throats will allow me to reach the lands and still function in the box magazine. Anyone have any input or experience with either?

Re: Factory 260 or creedmoor

with the exception of my 300wm
all my Savages have short throats & long mags
no problem reaching the lands
a new center feed
in 260 or cm
will have a long mag -short throat

I had a wish of 2900 from the 22" tube, either one of these be more capable than the other?

Not sure about the 260 but I have an 11 in the creed and 140 amaxes touch the lands and have lots of room left in the mag

I might be wrong but I think 2900 would be hard to get from a 22" bbl I got a 24 on my creed and pushing at about 2810 with no pressure signs with the 140 amax

The 130's are as heavy as I want to go.
