Re: New .260

We just started load development for 123 SMKs and Varget. While Varget is not the best powder we have ALOT of it is showing real promise @ 39.0 W/ BR2s groups in the 3s have not shot over chrono yet but will post when I do. Nice buid like the camo

Lapua brass, 142 smk, and 43gr H4350 is a shooter in my TRG! Modest velocity at 2750fps, easy on brass, and it is very consistent.

Very nice rifle you have there!

Re: New .260

I resized some 7mm 08 brass, man was that easy

I loaded 3 different loads
h1000
4831
varget

Berger 140 VLDs, can't seat them deep,
though I need to play with the Seating

I will give them a try as soon as my base gets here
