I know this thread is almost a year old, but I'm reading everything I can about the .260 and reloading for it. I have a dinky little Model Seven, factory tube, just had the action bedded and the trigger worked. I found a load I'm very happy with for hunting and it's as accurate as I think anything ever will be from this walking around rifle, but I'm keeping my eyes open for other loads and bullets to try. I'm new to reloading and enjoy the tinkering.
Are any of you using RL-22? 49.3 gr pushed a 129 gr SST out of my 20" tube at 2,897 avg for 3 rounds with an ES of about 15, I think SD was 8.
I have a pound of H4350 to try with some SMKs for S&Gs, but I was thinking about trying it with the SST. I doubt I'll beat the RL-22 for accuracy or velocity, but I'm just curious.

And yes its been almost 4 weeks, can't wait to see my rifle, I hope factory barrel will not disappoint me... By the way guys, are all of those one hole groups done with factory or custom barrel? There is no way factory barrels can group that well.
My factory 20" tube put 3 into 0.174" on Sunday.
