I got some 260 Lapua brass a couple days ago.

I will fill a couple and weigh them tomorrow ...

Capt Academy, what 260 are you getting? Not every 260 suited for 140 gr long bullets, all depends on freebore particular chamber might have, if its standard chamber, hot loads would be impossible and dangerous.

Re: 260 Rem Load Recipeies?

If I remember correctly it has .200" free bore, I did have it chambered for the 130 to 140 grain LVD’s.
The 140 fits perfectly in the case but I am running longer bottom metal on a 700SA to accommodate the longer bullets.

Thank you Lisa, you got nice rig! Right now I'm playing with 140 gr Nosler CC, its match bullet sort of like SMK, from what I see my max oal is 2.760, so I'm researching gunsmiths in my area to get this chamber done right.

Jinx, 308 Nate is building it for me. I plan on using it in tactical matches. I currently use a custom Rem 700 suppressed. It's a 1/2" rifle or better, but I am just not as good as the rifle!
