Why is 6.5 better than 6.8?

Older and Wiser he has a bigger number. (39 > 20.) (6.5 < 6.8) so how is 6.5 better?

its ok james, #2 doesnt have anything better to do with his time, it fills a void in his life and makes him feel important to put me down, and thats fine. he knows who the boss is when i call swfa to place an order.

Pyro, for what it is worth, I also prefer 6.5 over 6.8.  My 6.5 Grendel is joy to shoot.

 i dont mind talking about the 6.8spc or the .270wsm or .270wby but the .2_0win should be called the 6.8oconnor.

the only thing the 6.5's lack is a huge following by sportsmen in this country, thats it. look at the belted magnums, roy weatherby was the only one willing to take a chance on a .277 belted, remington and winchester didnt try it which was smart on there end. the 7mm is arguably the most popular belted magnum of all time, as far as number of people who own them.
