I'm not sure I'm going to rush out to purchase either of these but I'm more than willing to give them a chance. I like my traditional cartridges just fine, but I love using the .17 HMR on ground squirrels here in Montana along with my Rock River Arms varminter in .204 Ruger. I'm also half convinced that I don't need any other cartridge for big game than the 6.5 Creedmoor, given how well it does with Hornady's 130-gr. GMX bullet. And I still have a soft spot for my .338 Federal, which as accounted for everything from coyotes to moose. Using the 180-gr. AccuBond, it'll take down any animal and the recoil is hardly noticeable.
