Didn't you read James Jones post he took his best Deer ever at 944 yards with the 260 and believe that it is a 100 yard Deer cartridge with the proper bullet

With those bullets I'd probably asy that 600yds was a stretch ,the only reason being that the SMK's are built pretty stout and I doubt that you would get good expansion at that range.
Now move to a 140gr Berger or A-max that has a alot thinner jacket and softer lead for the core and the 260 is a 1000yd deer rifle ,I took my longest ever deer this past season at 944yds with a 140gr Berger. [Quote/]
