    when I started with my 260, I simply re-sized my 308 Lapua brass, but I had to turn down necks, then fireformed them with light load IMR TB with Cream of Wheat as feeler and Crisco on top to seal it all, anyway you can resize any of 308 family brass to fit 260 chamber, so 243, 7-08, 308 can be utilized for this purpose. If I remember it right, before Remington standardized its name, it was know as 6.5-08 A-square, which is better as far as chamber throat.

    Savatage are you still looking for Remington, 260 Rem brass? A local store has some and they could ship you a 100 or so. Let me know and I will get the store's number to you.
