Completely agree. 65CM finds it advantage from 300m +

The 6.5 Creedmoor (and I have a rifle chambered for the cartridge) is no better for close to intermediate range sniper operations than the venerable 308 Winchester, and the latter has far more ammunition options.

My personal opinion for the switch is that SOCOM is moving away from the .308 and switching to 6.5 Creedmoor. Law enforcement tends to follow what the military is using. Personally I made the switch seven years ago because of ballistics and recoil management advantages. The military made the switch for similar reasons.
