It's nice to read what others have to say about one of my favorite rifle/cartridges. I wasn't familiar with the 260 when I found a Pro Hunter at a gunshow and being a long time fan of the 6.5x55 it came home with me. My Pro Hunter is a consistent 3/4moa shooter even with the Remington 140gr Express Core-Lokt. Mine really shines with a 120gr Nosler Hunting BT with 43.5gr of IMR4350 avg 3/8" for 3 shots at 100yd.
FYI Mcmillan offers a stock based on their A-3 model:
McMillan Tactical Stocks, McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, Synthetic Stocks, Tactical Stocks
Most of my rifles are in 6.5 bore, my old Swede in 6.5x55, the Steyr in 260 and a pair of 6.5 Grendels on the AR platform. Makes stocking components easier.
Steyr uses a bedding system that has a round front lug that fits into a matching recess in the stock and both actions screws bear against pillars embedded in the stock. With the accuracy and consistency of shot placement I get I won't bother with further bedding.
I enjoyed this article.
