Re: .260 Rem or 6mm BR

How about the 6.5x55? Over a 100 years old, and still hangs with the big boys.

Over 250 000 match shooters here in scandinavia use it with a Sauer match rifle. Very similar to a SIG 3000

140 grains easy at 2700fps, but can be pushed faster. Barrel life is around 4-5000 if shooting at 2700fps.

Or a 95grain V-max at 3300 fps with a B.C of 0.36

Lapua brass, and excellent bullets available.

I would either use 6mm BR or 6.5x55.

Given your objectives with the .308 rebarrel, I too would send you away with a fast (1:8) twist 6BR. I have one with a 27" barrel. Long range shooting past 300 yards is easier with this rifle compared to any other I've shot. It has viritually no recoil and the VLD class bullets shoot true even in the high winds.
