    does anyone have any good loads for 260rem.

    it's a 30" 1 in 8 5R barrel.

    planning on using 123grains scenars, lapua brass and fed match primers.

    any recipes/advice much appreciated.

    cheers

    My match load is 123 Lapua (.0010 off lands), Win 7-08 case (Necked down), BR2 primer and 41.0 gr of N-140. I get 2950-2965 out of a 26" Krieger. With Lapua brass and Fed primers I would start out at 39.5 gr.
    Another good load is (for me) 45.0 gr H4350. Again, start out lower.
