, that sounds great getting that type of performance out of at 260AI. I'm not sure I would enjoy lugging around 31'' of barrel in the woods though. I have started to rethink my choice of getting a factory gun. I have an m48 mauser that doesn't shoot worth a darn(I have literally tried every 8mm bullet made), I checked the magazine and I can load well beyond 30-06 COAL. I am talking with a gunsmith now about rechambering it to 280AI or 260AI, I'm not really sure which I want now. If I go with the 280 I'd probably get a 26'' barrel, and 22-23'' with the 260.
I have not invested in a neck turner yet, I have been getting around that by using lapua brass in my guns. Senderofan do you have to neck turn with that 260AI, not purely for better accuracy but to remove a "donut" from fire forming?
