Re: New .260

starting loads
not a bad start, gives me somthing to work with
Hornandy SST 123 powder 4831SC 47 grain
Berger VLD 140 powder 4831SC 46 grain
Nosler Ballistic tip 120 powder 4831SC 47 grain
Barnes TTSX 120 powder 4831SC 47 grain

4 shots each






The berger 140 did a nice .386 but the 4th opened it, typical of VLDS
and the 140 VLDS hated the BLC2

    Re: New .260

    Thanks, I just shot the load out to 400 yards, it took 1.7 Mils from a 100 yard zero, almost makes me think I am shooting near 2892 according to G7 ballistic program when I run the numbers, this seems hot? I do not have a Crono

    here are my dial ups

    200 -.4
    300-1
    400-1.7
    500-2.5
    600-3.4
    700-4.3
    800-5.4
    900-6.5
    1000-7.7

    according to G7

    the 1,2,3 and 400 are spot on

    remington brass, cci 200 primers, only very mild primer flattening, no other signs of pressure

    Quick question for you, how deep is the hook on the back of the stock for your opposite hand?

    Also do you prefer a flat or tapered bottom to your stock for your sand sock?

    Bad ***** paint job by the way!

    Thanks


    hook inset
    2.76 from the tip of the hook to the back of the stock not including the recoil pad
    1.126 vertical

    .524 deep

    I would prefer a little flatter on the bottom
