Re: 260 Rem with 142 smk\'s
Hoodcounty, I had the 107smk going at 3125fps using varget powder and it would shoot about 1/2 inch at 100yds, but for silhouette I loaded them to about 2700fps and they shot very well also. I load the 142smk to about 2550fps with 35gr of varget, this load shot about 5/8 inch at 100yds. My barrel is 26" long with a 1 in 9 twist (factory varmit barrel), I like this caliber very much, but I think I'm going to try a 6.5 grendel when this barrel goes as I'm in the process of have another .260 rem. built.
