I have reloaded for 243 for about 15 years and just recently have gotten interested in the 260. My second option would be something for the thick stuff like a 338FED. Most of my field shots are between 200 an 400 yd, sometimes longer. So you guys tell me what you think, thanks!!
Like the action, as I use XP-100's.
What kind of game are you hunting?
If I was just picking one of the cartridges I would go with the 260 Rem.
