    a review of the cartridges themselves. I would especially like to see how the creedmoor compares to the 300 win mag ballistically and also how they perform in the shorter barrel lengths (20" - 22"ish) vs. the more traditional longer barrels (26" - 28")

    I've heard the Lapua actually does pretty well with short barrels. They both have similar external ballistics to the 260 rem, which as Mel has said, cna have a very similar trajectory to the 300 WinMag. I'd really like to see a review from Mel as well. That'd be something to really look forward to. The rounds are gaining popularity in a lot of practical and tactical competitions as well. All 3 of these 6.5 choices are pretty appealing, and have their benefits.

    Until then though, here's some reading to hold you over, Danhaaf...

    If you can push a 123gr Lapua Scenar at 2900fps, you will have very similar ballistics to the 300 WM 190gr Match at 2900fps.

    The 260, 6.5x47 and 6.5 creedmore are all very similar ballistically. The creedmore is kind of a grassroots cartridge and is a cool idea. The 6.5x47 is a very well designed cartridge by lapua for competition shooting, and should have better barrel life than the 260. All three of them will do just about the same with the bullets.... pick your favorite. In my eyes, it will be hard to justify having one of each.
