Take a closer look at post #13.
Neither one of us should be shooting at elk at 700+ yards with either. However, if you had to the 200 AB sports a BC of nearly .100 more than the 140 AB with 60 more grains and a much higher SD. You will get more velocity out of the 260 at the muzzle. The 200 will surpass the 140 in every catergory except drop.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
