Out of the selection I went with a custom barreled .260...and so far ( very limited usage) I love it. If the right load in a 260...( or for that matter a Creedmore or even the 6X47) cant get "it" done..then it cant be done.
Whatever you do don't shoot it. Save yourself!
The damned thing is insanely addictive.
I guess I'll have to put some pictures of my new AR 260 up and maybe a target.
Had to remount the scope yesterday and actually put a paper target up to sight it back in instead just shooting trusty rocks in the pasture as usual.
Didn't have much time, so I just set it at 250yds and started shooting.
After a 20rnd magazine.... . well it looked so good I burned three more magazines on rocks out to 800yds, and then made a real mess out of a starving, flea bitten, mangy young coyote at a little over 400yds on the run on my way home.
I don't quite have it all together like I want it yet, but damn is it a fun rifle to shoot!
8 twist 24" is loving 120's, 123's, and 130's.. .
