New .260

New rifle I am, working on I just skim bed it and duracoat it, waiting for scope base, stainless Remington 700 action, bolt trued, lugs lapped. It has a Kreiger spiral fluted barrel with a 1/8 twist. 24" long with a standard Palma contour. Stock is a manners mcs gat with two flush cups, a swivel on the forearm and a badger ordnance mini chassis. Caliber .260





I need to find some good loads now for the 1/8 barrel

Re: New .260

Looks Great! - Congratulations!. 260 will be my next rifle if I can get components. I am looking forward to following this thread.

It would be nice to see some loads for the 123 grain Lapua Scenar using H4350 and Lapua brass. I know that is not a hunting bullet but I would also like to use the rifle for longer range paper punching.

Re: New .260

I am still having a hard time figuring what color to paint the stock, something that goes with the stainless, I settled for now on the dark earth.
I am contemplating painting the stainless black?

any ideas out there

I like my girls without makeup. That rifle looks badass the way it is, I think that is one of the reasons I like the looks of it so much. Bad, Bad, Bad!!

Sweet looking stick!

I've really interested in the MCS GAT stock as well. How is the length-of-"pull" to the trigger? What's she weigh all-up?
