Re: 260 rem or similar

I have been looking at the tikka rifles for a while and the savage LRH I will look at the cdl as well what twist rate is ideal for the 130's?

    Get a 8 twist,which is what most come with. A savage 10 th xp would be the cheapest way out and in my opinion would shoot better than any Remmy. A tikka in 6.5x55 or 260 would be great but are as hard to find as moon rocks.

    A 260 with a 140 grain bullet is plenty for just about anything in my opinion. Greater retained energy and less wind drift than the 308 plus exceptional sectional density for maximum penetration. Not to mention very little recoil.

    If you are thinking .260 and looking for a little more umph.. look at the 6.5-285 or a 6.5-06.

    The 260 ai would be a good choice as well. Pretty wicked all around shooter, but the regular 260 isn't a slouch either.

    I would like to stay with the 260 either the tikka or the savage LRH. I have never been to impressed with the savage rifle composite stocks but it might have to do.
