Re: LR hunting bullet for 260AI ?

Ric, can a 9" twist work for the 6.5 140 gr amax or should a 8" twist be used?

    The box of 140 Amaxs on my reloading bench says 1:7.5 twist but they stabilize in my 8 twist, 9 might be on the edge but you could try em.

    Thanks for the info guys. I have load development to do for this gun once I fire form all my brass. I'll try them both and go with what shoots the best. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    I have had some great results out of my Mountain Rifle in a 260 with 120 grain NBT's. I have dropped deer from 30 yards to 500 with it. Mine likes 40 gr of RL 15.

    I shoot a 260 in sniper rifle competition. My load is the Hornady 140 gr amax with H4350 @ 2818 fps. It is wonderfully accurate and hits plenty hard I picked the amax over the Sierra based on the potential for game use. ( the two shot exactly the same in terms of group size ) You will be quite happy with it for deer sized game out to 600-800 yards.

    I shoot a 6.5 with a MV 2775 and used the 140 A-Max last year to shoot a medium sized buck @ 260 yards. Bullet did a good job and I intend to use it again for deer.
