Re: Who is shooting a 260 Rem or wildcats of it
With my improved .260 I get 2850 fps. in a 25", 1 in 8, 5C with 142SMK's and 46 grs. 4831SC. 210FGM. I use .308 Lapua brass (This is a screaming accurate load in my rifle.)I use the .308 Lapua as it is a bit cheaper than the .243 Lapua brass, but they both work very well and have used both.I have also used .260 Rem. brass but it takes a bit more work to get it up to par. I have not had to neck turn but it is right there, meaning a fired case will hold a bullet with very slight friction, but the loaded rounds chamber smooth. I can see how a different lot of brass you may have to neck turn.
P.S I have hit 2950 in this rifle with (with other powders I think it was VV500 series and reloader 22) good accuracy, but it is hard on brass. None of these loads were hard extraction, but the primer pockets loosened up pretty bad after 3 - 4 firings. FWIW Nate
without God their is no hope for this country
