    Did you have a hard time deciding between 6.5 Creedmore vs. 6.5 Grendel?  I waffled between a few different cartridges and did finally decide on 6.5 Grendel.  Mostly came down to availability of ammo/reloading supplies.  Using the parent 220 Russian case was one of the deciding factors for me.  I do look forward to your build.

    Bryan, I have been running .308 for years and years but as of late I am becoming more interested in the .260 round. what are the benefits of the creedmor over the .260 that you have found?

    I have been wearing a Condor Battle Belt for several years.  I use the optional suspenders, so that I have a place to attach a hydration pouch.  The main purpose of this rig is to have a lighter option, when I don’t need to wear my full Search and Rescue load.  I usually will wear it when acting as radio support for events such as races or parades.  I like having a MOLLE platform to carry basic first aid supplies as well as other gear (sunscreen, bug spray, etc.)–and the suspenders also give me a good place to clip my radio.  I admit this is pretty light work, so I will not attempt to comment on the use of a Battle Belt in tactical situations.
