    That depends on the individual throating of each gun, If you get a new barrel fitted the gunsmith can cut the throat to suit the projectile of choice
    factory throats can be any thing depending on the wear of the reamer

    A mate is running a std Tikka T3 in 260 with the 143 Eld-X as well with 2209 for the same speed as me.

    There is bugger all difference in speed between the 6.5x47L, 6.5 Creed & 260.

    As Mathias said the 260 in a LA would insure you could get 2800 if you play around with powders & throated it accordingly.
    Why do you say he would struggle to get 2800 with a 140gn bullet and a 22" barrel when you get 2750 with a 20" barrel and a 20" barrel? If you believe that each inch of barrel roughly eguates to 20fps then he is bang on the money.....

    If you use Superproformance powder you will usually get over 2800fps in both .260 and 6.5 Creedmore with the 143 ELDX

    @Kudu, Well I had a Creedmoor with a 20" barrel & it was slower than my 6.5x47 (Hornady brass, 2209, 143eld) if you got some Lapua brass with the small primer pocket, Pushed it hard with a fast powder like Re17, etc then you'd probably get it to 2800, whether it would be accurate there, who knows? also hornady list there factory 143eld-X load as doing 2700fps from a 24" test barrel.
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!
