    I was wondering if anyone used these bullets for hunting even though they are a HPBT?

    I would be shooting them out of a 260 Rem. at whitetails, hogs, and coyotes. I am going to work up a load and see what kind of accuracy I will get.

    Also, can anyone who shoots the 260 recommend a pet load they use. I have quite a few brands of powder on hand as well as two different brands of 123 gr. bullets, 100gr. NBT's, some 130 Nosler Accubonds, and 130 Bergers.

    Thanks for the advice,

    Start at 38.0 gr of RL-15 and work up with CCI BR 2's. Bullet about 25 thou off lands.
