    Been awhile since I've posted a new thread. Been living life and paying bills. Anyway, looking for load info on 260 Rem. Powders I'm interested in using are RL19, H4831sc, and IMR7828ssc. The reason for these powders is due to availability. These seem to stay on the market. Bullet will more than likely be the 140, but 123 isn't out of the realm of possibility. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks, already looked at that one. I'm more interested to hear from the guys here that have used any of these powders. Thanks anyway. I appreciate your time to post.

    I had Savage BVSS action with Walther 28" barrel with 1-8 twist, custom stock, recoil reducers, stightron 8-32 scope. Started with 44.5 grains of 4831SC with the 123 gr. A-Max and worked up to 46.3 grs. Shot Prairie Dog in WY last year at 1580 YDS witnessed by two others.
    I was using 45.4 grs 4831SC with 142 gr Match Kings, but liked the velocity of the 123's better.
    For short work out too 700 yds I like the 95 gr V-Max with 44.5 Varget.

    But.............start low and work up, I had some funny results working up loads of case collaps on some of the lighter loads, only happened to me before with Rel. 22 on my 22-243 AI with a 1-8 twist. You know, slow burning powder.gun)
