Im not a .260 guru but 2800-2900 with the 140's is as hard as i'd push it.

Tyler hit the nail on the head 2700-2850 is going to be in the wheel house of the 260 rem and the 140 grain bergers...I run three different 260's with that combo and they all are around there speed wise....if you haven't already found a rifle I may know where a custom 260 with all the load work and drop info is sitting and for sale.
