and someone else to pull the trigger
Reminds me of advice I got from someone; when in doubt--let someone else pull the trigger, and if the bang isn't followed by a scream you're good to go.

I'm pretty sure these cartridges have different dimensions, even if the cartridge body diameter is the same for the two.

Guy claimed it gave you more ammo options if you had a .260.
This is about like the old men who sit around and chew the fat at the local hardware store. They told an old lady there buying STP oil treatment that Karo syrup worked better and cost less. Care to guess how that turned out?
