You did a great job..
Thanks.

Just picked up my 300RUM, also customized by Kevin at Montour County Rifles (www.montourcountyrifles.com). It is a visual twin to my 260. Will be starting a new thread with pics soon.

Picked up my 300RUM. It is almost a visual twin of the 260 (260 in the rear)

Re: My 260 by MCR

Just a quick update as the 260 has had a couple of upgrades done - CDI detachable mag bottom metal and Badger bolt knob. Had the work done as I shot a tactical match recently and not having a detachable mag put me at a real disadvantage. Bolt knob should have been done when the rifle was initially built.

This will necessitate load redevelopment as my current load will not fit in the mag box. Couple of buddies have been shooting the 130grain JLK with great success.



As always, all work done by Kevin Cram at Montour County Rifles (www.montourcountyrifles.com)

Re: My 260 by MCR

It took some work, but seem to have found a mag length load. If initial performance continues, this will be the singular load for this rifle as JLK bullets can be used for both targets and hunting.

In load development, was pretty much set on the 130JLK, H4350 and Lapua brass. This left charge weight and primers as the variables. Tried F210M, CCI BR2 and Fiocchi primers. Fiocchi provided a consistent low ES across multiple charge weights of H4350. Thanks to ICANHITHIMMAN in a previous post in this thread suggesting Fiocchi primers. My load development had me focusing-in on F210M and on a whim, tried the Fiocchi. So far their performance has been great.

Here are the details:

Bullet: 130grain JLK
Powder: 45.4grain H4350
Primer: Fiocchi Large Rifle Primer
Brass: Lapua (love it that Lapua came out with 260 brass!)

Velocity: 3005fps
ES = 5
Accuracy = .320moa (pic below)




Used this load at an informal tactical match this past weekend. The load performed well out to 700+ yards.

Ran the ballistics on this load and with the 130JLK going 3005fps, it is a deer killer to ~900 yards.

Re: My 260 by MCR

Just a quick update....pleased to report that this rifle has set my person longrange record. Took a 58" pronghorn at 670 yards this year in Wyoming!
