Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?

I walked into my local gun shop this afternoon to pick up a bottle of bore solvent. On the shelf was a brand new, never fired Rem 700 with a big fat target barrel and laminate stock in 260. I couldn't resist and bought it on the spot for 575 bucks. Ever since I got home I've been reading these posts on this thread with interest. After reading all this I'm going to try H4350 and 142 Sierra MK. Thanks for all the good info. Anyone ever have one of these Rem 700s in 260 Rem?

    Not sure if Remington makes fast twists for their 260, so it might not handle 142 gr bullets, so check your twist rate first...

    I think it's probably a 1:9 twist, but I don't think this barrel will be on the rifle for too long.

    I looked at a 700 a few months ago and it was a 1:10. Call Remington with the serial. Umber and they'll tell you. 1/9 won't handle things as well when you go over the 130 grain bullets, you need 1/8 or 1/8.5.

    Model 700. That's all it said on the reciever. I'm assuming it's a VLS? It's a few years old, but never been fired. No alterations of any sort. No new bedding, trigger is bone stock, etc.
