Re: Short Action Custom 260
Joe, we talked PM, but I will post here so everyone can see my reasoning and fascination with the 260. I, myself, have a 338 being built by Kirby, which I can't wait to get my hands on. I was looking for something to shoot cheaper and target shoot. I was able to shoot my friend's 260 and fell in love with it. The ballistics are amazing, and the recoil is very light for a flat shooter. My rifle weighs about 17.5-18 lbs and it recoils like a 223. Availability of components is also great. If need be you could size 308 brass down and turn the necks but there is a bunch of lapua 260 brass available right now. It is a very accurate cartridge.
