    Hey everyone. I am looking for a load for my remington 260 for hunting. I am looking for a hotter load set up. It is a custom gun. Gailard #3 barrel-26", which is like most #5 barrels. 8 twist. I am hoping to use a Berger 140gr vld. Any info would be nice.

    I am using H4350 I like it I have great speed with 140g AMAX 2967 and Fioccie primers. I was using BR2 primers but the fiocci cut my group size in half.

    I had a good 140VLD load but it was so long that it wouldn't fit in the mag. 4831SSC with a mv of 2850 or so. I switched things up a bit and found a knock out load
    289nk tension
    129 SST
    43.3g RL-17
    2.810 OAL
    3000fps
    24"barrel

    Last group I shot a 200 was less than half an inch.
