140 NP in the 260rem

Looking for a good load for a 140 Partition and H4350.


Looking for something that should put me between 2750 and 2800fps?? Shooting a Rem mtn rifle with a 22" barrel..

Thanks

FWIW, I've had excellent results with H100V with both the 130 AB and the 140NP from the bench!!!

Re: 140 NP in the 260rem

With that H100V 130ABs and the 140 Partitions put three in half inch moa at 100yds. Did a phone book test and WOW! Them 140 NPs really kicked butt. I didn't really wanta run the 140's I was actually hoping to go with the 130's or 125NPs. But, if your killing phone books the 140NP outa the 260 is one bad MF'er! Seriously has left little doubt about the 260 and 140 NP's for elk..

I'm not sure about the temp sensitivity of this powder yet. Thats why I'm interested in H4350.

Recent Handloader had an interesting write up on a new powder. IMR-8208 XBR.. Looking forward to getting my hands on some. No temp issues and extremely accurate.

What weight SKG's are you running?? Can ya share that info?

Ever use any IMR-7828 SSC?
