Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?

Thanks for the response.
The info he gave me was were he left off, not sure of exactly how it worked for him. Im sure with selling the gun the answer wasnt going to be "close enough". Yes, Im using same bullet. And I have spent time with my nose in the manuals and here. All the info I was finding showed shorter COAL around 2.725 - 2.765. Was just curious what the effects of the load would be with the COAL of 2.950. Started today with the 142 SMk's, 36 gr Varget in new Lapua brass and cut one who with 3 shots at 100. Could cover the hole with a dime but couldnt cover my smile with a $10!!
Really appreciate everyone here who puts in the time to help out a new guy, the info, advice and experience is priceless.
Thanks again
Scott

Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?

Is there a reason you don't want to try the H4350? I have had great results with the 140 A Max and 42.5 grns of H-4350. With the 142 SMK I have used H-4831sc 46.5 grns. However, these are my loads, so work up slow. Using fed 210 primers. I plan on testing H4350 with the 142 SMK's next. My COL is 2.915

Not at all that I do t want to try it. I had the Varget on the bench so thought I'd start there. Am definitely going to do some experimenting to see what the gun likes. Wrote down your two as well as a few others to try.

The 46.5 grns of H-4831 sc works well with the 142 SMK also.
