    It's the bullet that has the BC and SD that makes it keep it's down range speed. Whether you launch it from the 6.5 Creedmore, 6.5 Swede, 260 Rem, 6.5-284 Norma, 6.5 Carcano......Ok....maybe not the Carcano.....But the bullet will do the work from all of 'em. Granted, a quality barrel, properly free floated and if you handload, proper brass prep, and all of those 6.5mm cartridges will do very well.

    ^^^ THIS.
