    Will the .260 basically do everything the 6.5-.284 will do in hunting situations. Thanks

    Pretty much

    The 6.5-284 is gonna have a bit more capacity which will help it out a bit MV wise and also its commonly argued the 284 case is inherently accurate and easier to tune.

    So unless youre hunting way out there, or really focused on precision, id assume most would deem it an insignificant difference.

    Thanks for the reply. Seems everyone wants a bigger rifle and forget shot placement with a quality bullet will get the job done every time.

    That is definitely the most important ingredient.
