How many 260 Rems have you actually loaded for? The 260 is easy to load for at least the two that I have loaded for. I think your info is a little off.

    Didn't read too carefully, but if you want some more speed than the 260 that's not a barrel burner, you could go with the 6.5-06 AI. more case prep.

    260 is not hard to load for, just not as easy as the 47L and I have done load development for more that 5 of both guns, some mine and some for others.

    If you are considering a 6.5-06 or the ai version check out the 6.5 Sherman.

    I wouldn't argue that it is easy to load for but when someone is trying to figure out which cartridge their build is going to be based off of people should give them solid facts on the pros and cons. Telling someone that they are going to waste two barrels finding a load for a 260 while you are still on the first 6.5x47L barrel is a little off.

    Realistically when you are talking about building a 6.5x47L or a 260, you can't go wrong with either choice. It would just be a personal preference because there isn't that much difference between the two.
