    I will keep my 6.5 x 284's http://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/2017/10/new-hornady-6-5-prc-precision-rifle-cartridge/ but I only have those in single shot match rifles. The 6.5 PRC may result some mag issues like the 6.5 Creedmoor does but I have...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 6.5 Creedmore - NOT in Factory Rifles

    Yes it will feed the very long bullets used by the long range competitors out of a 308 length mag. With the .260 using the same long bullets the mag runs out of space.
