    Can someone fill me in on the ballistics here? 260 rem. Smaller than 6.5 but more punch from powder? What sort of shooting would we be looking at?

    If I'm not mistaken it is a 6.5 just has the name of .260 Rem sits somewhere between 6.5 Creedmore & 6.5x.284

    I don't think so they list 6mm as its own and 25 cal to 6.5 together

    You are correct, therefore, has the current owner actually fired this as it is?
