How do you like the 260 ?
I have a Rem 700 MTN LSS that is a dream to hunt whitetail with, and since I'm a recoil sissy
, beats me up a LOT less than a 270 or 30-06 which means I practice a lot more.
Funny thing is I've been hunting with this rifle LONG before I heard it was getting popular in practical long-range shooting circles; I liked it because it was "different" and accurate and only later started learning about ballistic coefficients & all that.
This winter I put a 8-twist 26" varmint contour CBI barrel on another Savage 110 I had. Haven't taken it beyond 100yd yet as I'm still doing load development (and waiting for 123gr A-max to come back in stock) but its a pussycat to shoot.
