Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?

I am sure my data is no good to anyone else at all.
I built 3 rifles, in the fall of 2012 went to the hunting area a week ahead for target practice and load development, and shot the 260 and 7mmRM less and shot more practice and killed the animals with the 257RAIR.

The 260 data from the fall of 2012:
Lapua 308 Palma brass with turned necks, SAAMI 260 reamer, Shilen #3 taper stainless 9" twist finished at 24", 11 degree crown, CCI 450 small rifle magnum primer, 120 Nosler Ballistic tip moly bullets, 2.840" OAL, 40 gr Hodgdon CFE223 ~ 2900 fps, more powder would not get set off by the primer.

After some experimentation, I was only using the KG1, KG12, Kroil, Flitz, and Brownell's moly paste.
This was a great way to break in a barrel with the slow to Copper foul CFE223 powder.

Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?

Thank you,

Do you know what percent of case capacity that load is?

I have some Varget on hand, but I know that is far from 100%

Is the 47 gr. H4831SC at max load?

Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?

I went back and forth between 47gr and 47.5gr, with the OAL at 2.932. When I seated the bullets into the 47.5 gr I could tell I was compressing the powder (sounded like rice krispys). I didn't have that problem with the 47gr at that OAL.

Keep your results posted. I would be really curious to see the in flight difference between the VLD hunting and target bullets.
