In hind-site this is largely due to the fact that the load I had for it was really hot, the jump to the lands is long and is compounded by the fact that the rifle's primary use has been competition where it has regularly shot 10+ rounds in short periods of time without cooling.
I would definitely recommend the 260 to you. It is a great round. You can get great Lapua brass, bullets with good BCs and if you don't load it hot and shoot lots of continuous strings like I do, you get long barrel life.
