.260Rem and 123gr. A-Max, Scenar and SMK

Waiting for my barrel to get here for a .260 I'm building and I need some good loads. I picked these bullets as they have a very high BC. for their weight and they won't take up as much powder space as the 140gr. Bergers I have for my 6.5-284. I have on hand some H1000, H4831sc, RL22 and Magpro. I'd be willing to go buy whatever I need though.
Thanks in advance for your help.

I used IMR 4350 and Berger 130s.

I built 2 260's for a customer and RL 17 was best for me with the 123 Amax. Dan

H414 always works well in the 260 for me
