You could do worse than a .260 in my opinion. I too have a .308 that shoots 1/4" 5 shot at 100 yds but i have not tried Super Powder in it. You don't fix what isn't broke. I tried the 6.5x284 but was really disappointed in the barrel life(780 rounds). The .308 family seem to shoot longer than the "Hot Rods." When you get your .260 i will give you everything i have on it if you PM me. I rebarreled to the .260 after the 6.5x284 went south on me. I have to admit that it did shoot really well. If they would last as long as the .308 does i would have another one as i really loved it. Now, the Super Powder you buy is not what Hornady loads as it's Match ammo. I believe the powder i used in my.260 is an exceptional powder so much so that i ordered an 8 lb. jug of it today. Hope to get same results with this new batch as i know it will be from a different lot. One other thing i did not mention is pressure signs. There were none with my final load. I feel as though i could go higher but the accuracy was scary and the velocity was very good. I plan on moving up in bullet weight as soon as i can get them. You know how it is right now. Well good luck with your .260 in the future. SEMPER FI!
