Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?
I actually just got done testing some loads with 140 AMAX and 43.0 of H4350 does the trick. I have not done anything with the bergers yet but have a box of them (140 VLDs) sitting on my reloading bench ready to go. The 140 AMAX shot about 1/2 inch group at 100 with 3/5 stuffed inside eachother, i think it was shooter error for the other two cause the gun certainly likes to put em in the same hole.
Also, i have been shooting, with awesome succss, the 123 lapua scenars. My dad, first time he ever shot 500 yds and my 260 he shot a 3" group from a bipod off a wobbly table with 43.0 grn H4350 just to warm up.
I am using two loads right now that both perform awesome and they are the 140 AMAX and 123 Scenars with necked down 7mm-08 win brass and cci 200 primers. I find the win brass has a little more case capacity and stands up a bit better.
I have played a little with jumping and jamming but it seems that my gun likes a straight 2.800 length for both bullets. I haven't tried the 140 Bergers yet but i am going to start with a slight jam as typically that is what they like.
my gun is a 24", 1/8 krieger #10 MTU with a fitted rem short action and an HS precision PST025 or PST026 stock (can't remember which number it is but it is the adjustable one) would reccomend it to anybody.
Well hope this helps and when i get some time i will load those bergers up. i am pretty anxious to do so but this time of year sitting in a deer stand has occupied most of my time.
thanks and talk to you later,
