The 260 is a 6.5 based on the 308 case. you can buy 260 brass and have the proper head stamp
on it, or neck down the 308, 7/08 or neck up the 243.
I would buy the correct brass to start with.
The 260 Rem is a good 600 to 1000 yard target cartrige in the right rifle and a great hunting
round as long as you stay with energy and velocity required for the game and bullet
