The 6.5CM is never going to be obsolete in my opinion it just a great caliber to shoot and hunt with and very accurate to.I don't have a prc you do pick up 200 FPS over the creed,the only thing that stops me from buying one is the brass which can be very hard to find and when you do find it it costs an arm and a leg,so for now i will stick with my creed and am very happy with it.It seems to me that Hornady might have killed off their own product.
Who is going to buy a 6.5 CM vs with the 6.5 PRC available now?
So I wonder if Hornady will decide to release a 7.0 PRC in 3 years after everyone upgrades their rifles from 6.5 CM to 6.5 PRC?
Maybe a smarter move would be a 6.8 PRC to shoot all the new round that they will be making for the .277 Fury? Imagine; 270 win level of power in a cartridge that comes factory barreled with 8 twist barrels!
