my new 260 rem just for digs

Guys I had this in the safe for about 2 months now I had to sell my scope to buy the wife a new house. I have been so pre consumed with Kevin Crams 300 win mag I have neglected Kirby Allen’s hard work. Sorry Kirby.

Well I am holding on to some guns for a friend and he asked my to work up some loads for his 308. So I said nice scope and borrowed if for a while he doesn’t need it.

Shot the rifle yesterday for the first time WOW no recoil! The Muzzle brake is a work of art. I felt like a kid shooting a BB gun .












Specs
Rem 700 SA trued, bolt fluted, Sako extractor installed
Brux #7 Light target 1-8 twist with APS 3 port painkiller brake
HS Precision stock skim bedded
Factory trigger tuned by Kirby
Nightforce 20MOA base

I mounted up my buddies IOR scope grabbed the re loads and headed to the range. Kirby shot a one hole 756 yard group in testing prior to the rifles return to me( I lost the load info). I just shot a ladder yesterday and went a little too far popped a primer at 47g of H4350 scared the **** out of me. I went to fast had no pressure signs at 46g lesson learned.

Hope you guys like her. In hind sight I would have went with a different profile much too heavy for anything but prone work. But oh well just got to shoot her out I guess.

Jon

That's a SWEET looking rifle.

Let us know how she shoots once you've worked up a load.

Nice looking rig. Was the barrel and brake beadblasted or what?...I like the way it looks.

The best group was 1" at 200 yards at 46g of H4350 and no pressure signs but when that primer poped at 47g I freeked out! No Im scared to go that high again. I am shooting 140 AMAX rem cases CCI BR2 primers and H4350.
