Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?

gerryb,

also wanted to just mention to try a COL of 2.800 with those bullets you want to try. depending on your throat will make a huge difference in seating depth and much like the 308 the 260 performs equally or better WRT accuracy with stout pressure. i find a slight jam of .015 typically gives me the best results from the get go. mine is chambered with a rem action so there may be a difference but it just all depends, each lead slinger is different......talk to you later

Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?

I tried the Berger 130 VLDs the other day with 42.5 grains of H4350, these bullets shot great 1/4" groups. I plan on bumping up the charge a bit and see how they shoot. I plan on plying with these for a bit and plan on giving the 123 Lapuas a try as well. A friend shooting the 123 Lapua's really loves them for long distance.

cpt academy,

sounds like you got those 130s shooting awesome! that's cool, if you try those 123s from lapua both a buddy and I shoot 43.0 at 2.800 with cci 200s and they one hole at 100 and get about 3" at 500 (depending on operator but they come out of my gun at 2888 avg and are smoking. i also found that 43.2 seemed to shine as well but i went with the 43.0. would like to hear how they perform out of your gun with that load, good luck

jason

Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?

5RLR SHTR, I was working up a load with the 130's that blipelt had shooting well, his load ia a bit hotter though. I do plan on shooting/working with those 123's, my buddy was shooting next to another friend who was shooting the 140- Amax and the 123's had less drop to 1k on his rifle and load. He really likes shooting them for rifle competitions! These 260's shoot so well, it's hard to settle on one load!

Thanks for the info
Ron

Jason, I forgot to ask, was that 43 grains of H-4350 with the 123's?
