Re: Who is shooting a 260 Rem or wildcats of it
I shoot a 26" barreled 6.5-284. It runs the 140 gr. Amax, SST, and SMK between 2920 and 2950 depending on the bullet. I've shot about a dozen deer between 300 and 525 yds. with it and only the 2 shot with SMKs took a step, and they didn't make 100 yds.
I almost went with a 260 on my last project( a 4-500 yd deer rifle) but decided on a 6.5 wssm instead. I've only tried one powder so far(4831sc) but I get about 2750 with the 130 gr Scirroco. I don't see any problems with a 260, especially an AI version, doing what your looking for.
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
