    I've tried to find the answer but can't can you still use the 308 bolt for shooting the the 6.5 Creedmoor or do you have to buy a new one. Anyone with insight I thank you so much.

    They both use a standard bolt face, so you should be just fine doing a simple barrel swap.

    Better do a 260 and not take any chances. :D

    Thanks guys I have been pretty set on the 6.5 for a while but I had given thought to the 260 sometimes "adult" ;) decisions stink.
