I don't think you can get a 260rem anymore !

If you search 'tikka' a site pops up and shows them in 260rem -but in checking through the berretta site <- they own tikka -they don't show the t-3's in 260.
I was told on 24hr campfire that the 260rem's were no more -bummer for sure.

Remington is chambering the youth model -model seven in 260rem -retails for $550ish ?Not too bad providing it shoots good.

I can't quit going over to the kimber site and looking at the montana's in 260 or 7-08 -at 5 pounds 3oz's they sure are tempting for a backcountry backpacker like me.

I think the tikka 6.5 swede has a 1-8" twist in that chambering !
Good luck -Mike
