Does anybody have load data for a .260 rem using berger bullets?
My research says the Berger 140 VLD with 36 gr. of RL-15 set just .020 off the lands is good for 1.2 inches at 200 yd.s. Savage Model 110. Got to know where your land's are...
Savage LRP 260. 26" barrel. Lapua brass, .292" neck dia. 140 BergerVLD, 46 gr.H4832SC, fed210M, .005"off the lands. .25MOA 5 shots at 200 yards. Work up from 44.5, max pressure. 2820FPS
Rem700 blueprinted, Brux 26" #17HV barrel, 1:8.5 twist, WW 7mm-08 brass, Win LR primers, 130g Bergers with H4350. Can't recall exactly the charge (worked up from 41g) or the speed, but this is a very accurate combination for me and proved deadly on this year's antelope trip with 4 kills total out to 600 yards.
Correction: H4831SC is the powder
41.5gr H4350 in a 7mm-08 win case necked down and a 140gr VLD. The problem was the SMKs grouped better and were faster so I quit using the VLDs
Here's a couple of loads that have worked well for me. The OALs include a Sinclair "hex nut" bullet comparator. For base to ogive measurement, subtract 1" from OAL.
Awesome groups! my .260 likes the 140's better than 130's, Does any one have info. on the DPMS 260 AR???
