    Remington 700 mountain rifle in 260 remington with DBM.
    2 mags
    Walnut
    21.5" barrel
    Montour County Rifles accuracy package which includes recrown, lugs lapped, action bed, tuned trigger. Also has Decelerator pad installed by MCR.
    $800 plus shipping

    I bought this gun for my godson to use on a Colorado hunt when he was a little guy. Between the time I bought it, had MCR do the work and the hunt he grew 5 inches and gained 20-30 pounds. His dad's 30-06 was much more appropriate for an elk hunt so this gun was put in the safe. That was 4 years ago.
    Gun shot moa with factory ammo and my quick undeveloped load with partitions before the accuracy work was done. I have never fired it since I got it back from Kevin at MCR.
    54 rounds fired prior to accuracy work, zero since.
    Scope rail is something I had laying around (weaver?) I'll keep it if buyer doesn't want it.
    Gun is immaculate!

    I'm interested in this gun, you wouldnt happen to have the box for this gun would you, and is there any dings or scratches on it?

    One tiny nick left side just behind checkering can be seen in bottom photo.Couple of tiny safe dents that are too small to photograph.
    No box
    Matte finish
    Gun is near perfect.

    Back to top.

    I had a buyer last fall when I first listed this but the deal fell through and I decided to keep it. It's still sitting in the safe untouched, thought I would try it again.

    Thanks, Sam

    I've got to ask, "Why?". The .260 has recoil almost as light as the .243 but is useful on much more game, with far better penetration and range. (If this was stainless/synthetic I would probably grab it.)

    My uneducated guess is probably factory ammo. You can buy 243 from every Joe, Bob and Bill on the street but they likely wont have 260. Although I couldnt agree more with you. 260 is one heck of a round in my opinion.

    Pretty simple really, I gave my fiance my spare .243 and I want to replace it, but I need to replace it with a .243 otherwise my excuse of, "I need another gun so we can share ammo" won't work...I would love to have a .260, I already have a 6.5x284 tho and I am kinda fond of the 6mm chamberings. gun)

    Oh man, you're doing this all wrong!!! Let me lend a helping hand... :D

    You need to snap up this .260 immediately. When your fiancé asks, you'll tell her the price was so good that you couldn't afford to miss out on the rifle. Then you'll keep looking for the .243 because you still need another gun to share ammo with her.
