No cartridge is super wonderful, if there was one, there would be no need for any other type of cartridge. I love my Creedmoor, and it is super wonderful to me. I would say though, that the Creedmoor is the natural progression from .250-3000 to .22-250 to 6mm XC to 6.5 Creedmoor.
The .260 is a fine cartridge, it's just not my cup of tea in regards to short action 6.5 mm cartridges. Max Planck once stated "science advances one funeral at a time." In my mind the 260 represents a stagnation of thought processes, and the 308 cartridge family are the old guard of the short action club. I just tire of the old guard bashing other cartridges as redundant, when instead they should celebrate the advancement in cartridge "science." That is why I get a tad bit defensive.
