No need to try and save your barrel, that's what gunsmiths are for.
I would have thought it would be Niles Viking instead of coyote.....

Re: New .260

well back from the range, all testing done at 200 yards
140 grain vlds, H4350 COl 2.840
/i started at 42.7 groups were average about 2 inches
43 grains I started to see flattening of CCI primers so I stopped
I will go down now and then mess with the COL

I know every rifle is different but that seems kinda mild to be flattening primers.No ejector swipes or sticky bolt lift? Are you jammed at 2.840?
