I don't tend to hunt so if that's an issue, I can't really say anything about it.

I shot a 6.5 Creedmoor for PRS for a while (hoping to do so again when circumstances permit) and I found it easy to use even for someone who was very new to long-distance shooting. It has good ballistics, good behavior in wind, and negligible recoil.

More recently, ammo availability for 6.5 Creedmoor has become much more accessible and affordable. This makes it a much easier choice for somebody who doesn't reload.

I also knew a few shooters who liked .243 for long distance shooting in windy conditions, but that has its own considerations (short barrel life for one)
