Will be reloading this cartridge for tack driving/target shooting soon. Could use some ideas as to popular bullet weight/type/amount of powder-pet loads for shooting up to 800/900 yds.Twist rate-1:8/Barrel lenght 26"/Krieger/SS/5R. Many Thanks Erod

    What twist rate do you have? How long is your barrel? The 260 with one of the excellent 139-142 grain projectiles is capable out to those ranges and a bit further with the right set up. I like the Berger 140 myself but that is only one rifle and you might have better results with something else. Powder wise the cartridge responds quite well from medium to slow burning powders. I prefer slow and all of my loads are compressed except for one using the 100 grain ballistic tip for varmint vapourization.
