Well I'm glad its a .308. You made a good choice in cartridges. Yes the .260 is a good round. If I see one more 6.5 Creedmore video I will scream. That round was not developed for hunting. It was developed as a bench shooting round. Yes it can be used for hunting but there are better and true hunting rounds out there. I would take a .25-06 over just about any rifle including the the rifleman's cartridge .270. The .25-06 beats the .270 ballistically. I keep waiting for the .25-06 to make a come back and it would if they made a better bullet selection and increased the barrel twist. I had a Savage 110 in .25-06 that I never should have sold. Today I could have replaced the barrel with a faster twist barrel and made it a consistent 1000 yard rifle with heavier bullets.

My .22-250 could also be so much better if they made the rifle with a 1 in 9 twist rather than a 1 in 12. It could then use larger bullets and stay supersonic past 700 yards. Plenty of unused case capacity that could get it out to 1000 yards. With a 1 in 9 it still would not choke out the smaller bullets. Instead in the future when my factory 1 in 12 barrel gets worn out it will be replaced with a 1 in 9. The .308 and the .22-250 share the same 3000 Savage parent case from the old .250 Savage.

Lest I forget, the .260 also shares the same 3000 Savage parent case.

@RobertM: Folks keep saying the 6.5 Creed has a high BC, well so does the .22-250 and the .25-06 and they are hunting rounds not bench shooting rounds. They are just as flat shooting. The 6.5 Creed is not the greatest round ever and it can't do everything but boy the way they talk you would think its some kind of super round. I have heard all the hype so much I am sick of it. Its not a super round. Sorry. Just had to vent.

I'm not surprised you like it. Who wouldn't? Its a Sako. I bet it cost you also. Sakos aren't cheap. Neither are Tikkas that are the budget Sakos. Haha. The Finns make good rifles but they will cost you.

@switchpod : That would be a good one. Like to see that. Get range footage to see what they can do. Thanks for sharing.
