Re: Yeah or nay to the 264 win mag

I haven't built anything but the 6.5 so far but you could build anything you wanted with that reamer from 6.5 on up. I have no doubt that a .280 would push a 160 grainer at 3100 with a 26" barrel......Rich

    Well, i did it. I decided that I would go for the 260, and if I needed a little more i the future I would build a 264. The rifle itself helped the decision a little, I found a fair price on a Remington 700 CDL SF Limited Edition in .260. It's the only 260 on the market (that I know of) that has a 24" barrel. Can't wait to get my hands on it!
