6.5MM vs 7MM

Do you think there would be a hoot worth of difference between these 2 calibers hunting anything from whitetails to elk ?

Let me clarify this question a bit. The cartridges i'm interested in are: 260 , 6.5X55 7MM 08 and the 7X57

Not a chance. I shoot a 6.5x55, a 6.5-06 and in the past had a couple 7x57's, 7mm Rem mag and 280 Rem. Anyhing I would shoot with one, I would shoot with the other.

7x57

I have never owned the other calibers you mentioned but I had a 7x57 that my wife shot years back and it was a great caliber in my opinion. Light on recoil but had was good on game with handloads.
That's one gun I should have kept
