    Another +1 for the lrp, I skim bedded mine but that's about it. Even then the only reason I did that was for the experience of doing it myself. I'm getting .5 moa right now and 2880 fps with 140 amax and could go a bit hotter yet. Still playing with the bergers.

    Try a leupold vx3 4.5-14x40 or x50 with the 30mm tube mounted with talley's. That is what I'm mounting to my 6.5-06 when it gets back from cerakote

    Go with h 4831sc for the 140's around 45.5 to 46.5 gr for the 260

    What is your budget for scope? Some of the NIKON and viper vortex get great reviews and you can get them much cheaper than a leupold that would offer the same features. I have a vxIII 6.5-20 with Target knobs on mine but if I were to do it over I would do a vv pst or a sightron sIII in a 4-16x though I do like having higher magnification.

    What results are to be expected with this charge range?

    What barrel length?
