    A 6.5 Creed won our LR state F Championships last year so this argument is sort of like what can the 300 WSM do that the 300 Win Mag can't do that the 95yo 300 H&H can't already do.... Pick your poison and go with it.

    To me this on going debate, is nothing more than marketing, and personal preference. I personally like the 47L. But the facts are a .264 Cal bullet leaving an accurate barrel, at an appropriate speed for that given bullet weight, is the same from a CM, a .260, 6.5x47L or any thing else. I personally get 2850fps from 40 Grns of RL17, shooting way sub MOA. on a 139 grn Lapua Scenar. and any target from 100~1000 yards is in trouble.
    I am very sure that the CM, the 260, 6.5x284, 6.5x55 or any of the other 6.5 cases will do the same. SO maybe its TIME to give up the BS, and just have fun.
