Default 308 or 6.5 cr

Wanting to get into some long range target shooting. Not serious, just fun shoots. I'm very familiar with the 308. Never shot the 6.5. I know it's all the rage now, but is it really that superior to the old 308. For the record I am buying the Ruger American and probably Vortex optics. Handload eventually. Ranges probably won't be past 800 yds. What's the long range crowd think? I do know some inexpensive factory loads are good for 308. While the 6.5 is pricey for factory.
