I was looking very strongly at a 260 Rem, but have been hearing more about the 6.5 Creedmore. The guy at JP was trying to steer me towards a 6.5 Creedmore over the 260 Rem.

Can anyone help me out with this choice? It will be primarily a target rifle. Also any difference in barrel wear between the two?

They are ballistically very similar. The .260 has a bit more case capacity, but the Creed fits in an ar-15. Both use the same bullets, but the Remington has more brass offerings and is a bit cheaper because of the mark-up for the Creedmore name. If this for a gas gun, you might also look into the .264 LBC. It is virtually identical to the creed, but without the mark-up. But if this for a bolt-gun, I believe the .260 is the winner because of more velocity...

Agreed.

260 for the bolt gun.

6.5 Creed for the AR.

Both are pretty easy on barrels, I think.

What a rough problem to have which laser do you choose...

For Target if you reload .260 Case Capacity and LAPUA BRASS and LAPUA Bullets...

A creed does not fit in the AR-15.  It fits in the .308 size AR.  the 6.5 grendel fits in the AR.

Thanks for the responses. I am leaning towards the .260. Although I will have to look at the .264LBC.

264 LBC is the same thing as a 6.5 Grendel.  Just different enough to get out of Alexander's umbrella.

Kinda but the 264 has a better shoulder angle and has performed better than the Grendel design
