Nope. I was shoot nosler brass, cci primer and 140VLD's in my 260 rem (LRPR target action savage) and I can't get over 2609 without showing pressure. It shoots really well though. My current 6.5-06 is on a 700rem with a douglas barrel 26" just like the savage I use winchester 25-06 brass and a cci primer and I get 3078 pretty consistantly. I am building another on a savage 110 action and I am hoping to hit 3200 with a 27" barrel with 129SST's. I shot 123 Amax out of my 260 and the best I could get was 2930fps. I can get 3301 with the 123Amax with the 6.5-06. I don't know if my 260 just really hates 140's, but even in the 123's my 6.5 is over 350' faster.
