Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?
Ok, here is something a little different.
Try RamShot Magnum. I ran the numbers in Quickload for Varget, IMR8208XBR, RL-17, H4350, RS Hunter, H4831SC, and RamShot Magnum.
Quickload showed RamShot Magnum produced the highest velocity with the lowest pressure of them all with the Berger 140 Hunting VLD in a 26 inch barrel.
The load I have been working on for a 260AI with a 140 Berger Hunting VLD, is 53 Grains RamShot Magnum, with a REM 9 1/1M primer, seated to 2.9" OAL, in Nosler 260 cases.
I would start out at 50 grains RS MAG in a regular 260 and work up from there.
RS Hunter and H4831SC are also producing good results for me, but RS Mag showed the best velocity potential in Quickload ....
Not sure how temperature stable RS MAG is though.
Seeing people have success with RL-17 is great, I have a bunch that I haven't had much success with in the past.
I will have to give that a try in the 260AI.
