Re: a question for .260 Rem shooters
You might consider the 6.5 Creedmoor or the 6.5x47 Lapua. Both give similar energy as the 260 Rem, but allow longer bullets in a short action magazine. If you want more performance at the cost of barrel life the 6.5-06 and 264 Win Mag are standard factory choices. In a Rem 700 (or similar) 3.6" long action magazine neither is crimped for bullet space.
