I built a 6.5prc but if I had to do it all over again, I’d probably go 6.5x284 since I can find brass for that right now. I haven’t found any good 6.5prc brass in many months despite being on many email lists. I’m looking for Lapua, Peterson or ADG.

Inside 500 yards on smaller big game =6.5 Grendel is a great AR round but aint bad in a bolt either.
It apears you got the biggens covered!

If it was me I and max range was 500 yards I would build a 6.5x47 or 260 ai both of these are on my list of what I want to build when funds are available I don't have any custom rifles right now but from the research I've done both of these cartridges are at the top of my list. Just my two cent

I love my 260s. lots of brass available (more than 6.5 creed and prc These days) and very easy to load on that cartridge.
I have a Remington 5r gen 2 and a Tikka CTR.
I want to build a 6.5x47 one of these days too…

I’d stick with the saum sense you already have brass. Otherwise and I know it wasn’t one of your choices, i like 26 nosler 🇺🇸
