    Default 6.5 Creedmoor v the .264 Winchester magnum

    What else are we going to do at this time of year?

    Here's a review comparing it to the .308.

    Good bullet no doubt, make a significant difference for 98% of the shooters? not likely.

    Over hyped...what 'new' isn't these days, gets guys to spend their money

    Hogwash...My 7 mm Rem Mag cartridge is much sexier, with amazing looking shoulder and is hands down more powerful. Thanks but no thanks.

    No way. The 6.5 Creedmore is way sexier. It's got prettier lines and the smell of it's burned powder is sweet.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    If I didn't already have a 7mm Rem. Mag., .300 H&H Mag., .358 Norma Mag., I seriously would consider the 6.5 Creedmoor, as it does have some very impressive numbers in it's ballistics info.

    The only thing that this article refers to is the rate of twist leading to poorer BC bullets being used.

    Look at the 6.5x55 SE, it is essentially the 6.5x55mm mauser loaded in a modern rifle, 2700fps with a 143gr bullet is no issue at all within the pressure limits, as fast or faster than the 6.5 Creedmor with a rate of twist normally 1 in 7.87", this is quick enough to stabilize really long bullets, even 160gr bullets.
