    The 6.5 will probably do anything you ask of it, and since it's a hot thing right now, reloading components are cheap and plentiful.

    6mm BR. Way longer barrel life, less recoil, easier to get top notch accuracy.

    6.5 has better barrel life.

    And a much bigger, better selection of bullets from Long range very high BC hunting bullets to short range light vermin bullets, to endless match grade target bullets, not to mention boolit moulds.

    I would go with a 6.5mm Creedmoor too. But maybe the 6mm Creedmoor would be even better though.
