I think we all buy what we want and not what we need. As for me, I've never really wanted a 243 or 6MM, and I wouldn't have acquired a 260 if my wife hadn't said she wanted a pig shooting gun. I had that 260 for 4 or 5 years before I ever shot it much, but once I shot it I liked it. I'm sure I'd feel the same way about a 243 or 6MM. Where I grew up, the deer were much bigger and the 270 was thought to be the right 'medicine'. Here in central Texas the deer are rather small, and now I have hogs and coyotes, which weren't an issue in eastern Louisiana back when. Most likely, a 6MM would be just about right for what I hunt now, but I already have the 260.
