Just one more consideration, the 260 Rem is a 1000yrd max cartridge. The 7mm-08 has been used in competition out to 1500 yrds. It handles wind better than the 6.5mm cartridge. The father out you go the more the 7mm-08 out performs the 6.5. Food for thought.

The 7mm-08 out performs the 308 Winchester in every way. Due to the BC of the 7mm bullet over the 7.62 bullet in certain weights.
