Why even get a 6.5mm when you can go with a 6mm and still shoot to 1k? I have seen a 15 year old girl clean up at Quantico F-Class with a 243.
I love these descussions about ancient fire arms (anything developed 30 years or longer ago). The ONLY reason the 6.5 is still in existance is it will fit in an AR frame.
Your statement doesn't make sense. All of the following - 6.5 Creedmoor, .260 Rem, .243 Win - will "fit" in an AR-10 action, but not an AR-15.


As for 6.5mm vs. 6mm, generally for similar long-range performance the 6mm has less barrel life. The 6mm BC values do not quite match 6.5mm either.

As to the 308 (I'll catch hell about this) it is a nice footnote in history and has outlived it's usefulness.
If we're talking about reality, .308 will not be a footnote even when it is finally replaced. After all, it has been a service cartridge throughout the world for over 50 years and new weapons systems are still being procured chambered for it.
