Zak, thanks for the quick reply. Due to such similarities, I've decided to go with the 6.5CM based on the price of ammunition. It seems that the .260 is at least $10 more per box than the 6.5CM and since I don't "roll my own," I can't justify paying such a premium for the .260.
With that decision made, I have two more quick questions if you don't mind. First, would a 1/8 twist rate effectively stabilize 120 grain through 140 grain bullets? And second, I'm going to have a custom barrel made for me. I have the option of the manufacturer either giving a standard neck diameter or "tight neck." Since Hornady is the only manufactuer of 6.5CM and lists neck diameter of .2969, would it be advantageous for me to order a tight neck at .2969?
Again, thank you for your time. You're a great resource and I really enjoy reading your articles.
