Re: Long range Savage Pics
I feel the .260AI and .260 Rouge do quite well for burning 5 grains less of powder than the 6.5-284. 2900 FPS is very doable in my 25" Broughton 5C with reloader22 and VV N560 but my really sweet load is with 4831SC at 2850 FPS. in the 25" barrel.
I hunted with the .260 Rouge this year and do to no real good range finder I limited my shots to 300yds. I harvested three nice sized does' with this rifle using three rounds.
One heart shot and two lung shots. The farthest was 250 yds. went about 10 yds. and it was all over, that was using the 140 amax. My humble opinion would be that this would be a very ethical 5-600yd. hunting rifle givin' good conditions and a confidant shooter. Others will argue......
without God their is no hope for this country
