We all know this... but it does it in a shorter case/action and handles longer VLD bullets at higher pressures (and marginally higher speeds). This is what the 300 PRC is attempting in the .308 cal.

But the 6.5CM was doing something others .260/6.5mm rounds hadn't. It established that size of a bullet as a viable long range precision bullet, and it did so in a case length that was functional in the AR-10. The .308 bullet has been established in that field for a while, and there are plenty rifles already in existence built to use it there.
