Re: 260 re barrel Which bullet?
chain, I have 2 rifles in 6.5mm and have shot 140gr SMKs, 140gr Amaxes, 140gr SSTs, and 130gr Sciroccos.
The SSTs and Sciroccos were very impressive on whitetails with most dropping in their tracks, however they weren't all that great on paper, under 1 moa @ 100 but definetly not shooting in the .2s or .3s.
The SMKs and Amaxs will shoot in the .2s and .3s but I didn't care for how the SMKs performed on deer (2, that was enough) they killed both but I had to track them 100-200 yds with very little blood. Haven't had a chance to try the Amax on deer but have heard good things about them as long as you don't try to drive them from butthole to breastbone.
I do have test loads to try for both rifles with the 130 gr Accubond and am hoping for a little better accuracy than the SST/Scirocco with a little tougher bullet than the SMK/Amax.... we'll see.
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
