    The guys who are shooting 260's--and winning--in our long range matches all seem to be using the same load...

    Remington brass.

    142 grain Sierra Matchking

    38.0 grains of Varget

    CCI BR-2 primer, or CCI 200

    This load works extremely well... work up from 36 grains and see how it goes.

    With 140's... same 38.0 grain charge of Varget should work well.

    No data for 130s... other than to say that Varget or 4064 would probably be the powders to beat...

    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.
