I have someone wanting to trade me a Remington 5r 6.5 Creedmore with VX6 3-18x50 OR a Montana Extreme X2 stainless fluted .260 with VX6 3-18x50.

Which is the better gun?

Not that it matters but the trade is for some Leica HD-B rangefinding binoculars. I have $1700 in them.

Bigsampson556, I can only give you my personal advise. I'm very partial to the Remington 700, 5R's (hence my screen name). But, the 5R's I own are all the "Gen 1" models, in 223, 308, & 300 Win Mag... I've sorta been looking for the Gen2 in 260 Rem. But, I had my own version of a Gen 1 built in 6x47 Lapua.. Anyway, back to your question. I LOVE my early model 5R's. With the exception of my custom made 5R, 6x47, the factory 5R's I own are the most accurate rifles I own. And, Lots of folks out there these days are jumping on the Creedmoor "Bandwagon"!!!!!!! Just my $0.02 worth....... Good Luck!!! Idaho-5R
