I haven't tried the Berger's in 6.5mm yet. They would be a waste of time in the 260 Rem-AR10. The restrictions of having to keep them at magazine length usually doesn't work well with Berger Bullets.
I shoot them in .224,.257,.284,and .308 calibers,and have always loved the way they shoot. But most of the best loads are way longer than any magazine length. Most bolt actions will even have to be shot like a single shot with the most accurate loads in my experience with loading the Berger bullets.
Most of my best loads using Bergers are either touching the lands,or they aren't more than .0010-.0015 off the lands.
When I get the 6.5 Creedmoor built,I'm sure I will try them in it. I like doing business with Walt Berger,he won my business many years ago after I emailed them for some load data and he personally sent me the load data,at 2 AM on the weekend.
That's what I call great customer service!
