Ive had both and ran a 140 in the 6.5 and 175 in the 308 for all practical purposes they are nearly the same in drop and drift. For targets I give the 6.5 the edge for less recoil and easier to see your hits thru the scope. For hunting I give the edge to the 308 for energy. If you are dialing in MOA or Mils a few either way is not going to make that big of a difference. I used to over complicate my shooting but I have learned to get a gun and shoot it a lot until you know it intimately, then the caliber really doesn't matter.
