The 270 is more gun than the 6.5 Creed. Don't kid yourself. No reason to get a Creed if you can have a 270.
With the new 145 ELD-X, Hornady is making the 270 competitive. But that's all they've done - make people who already own a 270 think twice about switching to a 6.5. The 270's 145 ELD-X is basically the same ballistically as the 6.5 143 ELD-X. But with the 270, you get no ballistic improvement in trade for a 40%-50% recoil increase, more powder for reloading, and no availability of high-BC target bullets for long-range shooting.
Essentially, the 6.5 can still do everything the 270 can do, and it can do some of it the same and some of it better. Doesn't mean the 270 is inadequate, but there just isn't much of a reason to pick a 270 over a 6.5 anymore IMHO.
