The 6.5cm has good barrel life, great availability of components, excellent selection of off the shelf rifles ranging from 250$ to 2500$ semi/custom stuff. The cartridge is inherently accurate, comes twisted for heavies, usually has a threaded muzzle. The ballistics of warm handloads run with a 300wm minus the energy, but also minus the recoil. The 6.5 creedmoor, needmore, manbun, hipster, whatever people want to call it, is an excellent design, marketing execution level: JEDI MASTER, it flat out works. I fn bashed this thing for MANY years. Now I own 3. And sad to say, my 25cm and 6.5 cms get shot more than anything else in the stable. Just f'n send it!I noticed everybody that had something to compare it with has a magnum or long action to compare.
Has lapua small primer brass, has proper geometry to keep bullets out of powder space and still make 2.85" coal? It is more efficient. Has gained FAR more popularity, just look at the ammo selection. I like both cases, both perform almost equally, both with their plus and minus.What can a 6.5 cm do that 260 Remington can't????????
LOL! There's some truth to that. I spent longer than I needed at the range one time because I was helping a friend. 6 out of the 10 lanes had 6.5 CM in their inventory of rifles to shoot that day.Well if you left your 6.5 creedmoor ammo home every other shooter on the line would lone you some
