So really will I need 2700fps + to compete?

Shouldn't the bullet do the work??

I would definitely try more. My charge is 42.4 of H4350 with 140 ELDM and I also had a great accuracy node at 43.2 with no pressure signs but did not want to push it. You have more room to go.

How far off the lands?

THE most common charge for 140 gr. bullet atop H-4350 in a 6.5 Creedmoor.

I started thinking about it last night. We should have a 6.5 creedmoor exchange party where we trade components that didn't work out for us. It seems like bullets are the biggest variation for 6.5 reloaders. Majority appear to be using H4350 and any brass they can find. Rather than go out and buy 3-5 different variations of bullets in 50ct we could trade/sell unused portions of bullets.

The speed gives it the advantage over the 308. Go for it!

That being said, its only one small factor.
