I have been thinking about picking up a new whitetail hunting rifle in either a 260 or 6.5 creedmoor. Most of my shots will be in the 200yds or less range, but I want to reserve the right to take some longer pokes. I have been looking at the browning a-bolt in a 6.5 creed with the factory 22" barrel and a Savage weather warrior in a 6.5 or 260 with the factory 22" barrel. I understand that a 26" barrel would be optimum for these calibers, but the factories only offer 22". Is the reduction in speed something to worry about with these calibers? I plan to use either a 125gr partition or 130gr accubond. Anyone with experience with these guns?
