Re: My 260 by MCR

If you should get tired of looking at two rifles that look the same...I'll take one so you don't throw it away.

    Thank you. I was a bit concerned about the color but when the scopes went on, that really brought the whole project together.

    No chance of getting tired of these shootin' sticks! the muscle brakes are very efficient and make them a dream to shoot.

    After some struggles to find a load that will shoot in this rifle with sufficient precision and low ES, the work has paid off. Here's new load data:

    Bullet: 130grain Berger hybrid
    Powder: 47grains Superformance
    Primer: CCIBR2
    Brass: Lapua
    COAL: 2.85"

    This load shoots .5moa or better at 2920fps. It feels good to have this rifle back in action and shooting like a house on fire!

    The last couple weekends have had the rifle out engaging targets from 100 to 700 and as long as I do my part, this rifle will put the bullets right where you point them.

    Also, shooting the Berger hybrids, this load can be used to hunt as well.

    Great FPS! Did you try H4350 with that bullet? That's always been my go to powder in all my rifles for the 260 and 6 Creedmoor.
