    It's a fine stalking calibre.
    But so is 6.5x55, 6.5 Creedmore, 6.5x284 and 260 Remington.
    The disbenefit of a long action applies to the 6.5x55 and 6.5x284 (usually).
    The Creedmore suffers from lack of Lapua brass (currently).
    In reality, it's moot whether there is any discernible difference between the 3 short action rounds. Their ballistics are so similar to make any real difference.
    My preference is 260 Rem simply because i know it so well. I certainly wouldn't feel disadvantaged in any way in the field with the 6.5x47.
