Finally!! The 260 Rem and the 140 SMK...

Finally found time to break in the 260 Rem from Chris at LSR.


I tried a few different powders and what not.. but she seems to like this...

RL 15 ( 37.0 grs )
wlr primer
140 SMK seated .05 off...

5 shots 100 yards


here's where it gets good.... I usually load 11 rounds one fowler and then I have 10 for 2 - 5 shot groups...
well the fowler went in to the group above so I had 6 left....
6 shots 250 yards....

    Dang it Ric the least you could do is start using a half dollar in your pictures. Your giving me an inferiority complex. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Very fine shooting.

    Very impressive group. Is that a Broughton barrel?

    Out of curiousity, why the 140smk and not 142smk? Secondly, what kind of velocity is your combination getting you? I am using more powder than your load in my 22-250. <-- just me talking out loud to myself.

    Dave
    If you comeout this way and stop in to say hi...you can shoot any one ya want...! Or all if ya like..

    sewwhat,

    I am getting 2720 fps with this combo.. I am not a fan of RL powders but hell, how can I not be with this rifle... if I had some more time I'd play a bit more to try to get a Hogdon to work.. maybe in 2 weeks after the hunts..

    I used the 140 simply because it likes it.. it doesn't like the 142 as much...speed and high B.C's are nice but accuracy kills!
