The facts I find both interesting and rather counter intuitive is how many of the 6.5mm rounds will overtake the 300 WM at longer distances.
Not so. Other .30 cals like the .308, yes.
Not the .300 Win Mag, at any range from muzzle to 1500 yards from data I've seen. Again, the OP wants to use this for long range Elk. Most advise minimum 1500 fps and 1200-1500 lbs at impact. This eliminates the 6.5 Creedmoor at around 500 yards (or less) due to lack of energy. Not taking anything away from the 6.5's and 6's, their SD's provide for wind-cheating advantages but mass- still translates to energy for applications where energy matters.
