    I just received a box of 127 gr. LRX for my 260. I can't seem to find any load data for this bullet anywhere! I have the barnes reloading manual but I don't know enough about it to convert information from a similar weight bullet. I know barnes is particular about pressure due to the unique configuration of their bullets.

    Can anyone provide any info on this bullet for a 260?

    I sent barnes an email but don't expect a response anytime soon due to the recent panic and subsequent rush on all things shooting.

    My rifle is a M700 with a PAC NOR 24" barrel 1:8" twist

    Thanks!

    I don't shoot a .260, but for my 6.5x284 I worked up a good load with H4350 and the 127 LRXs. I used Barnes load data for the 130 grain bullets as a good go-by.

    I asked the same question a few weeks back and I also have a 1:8 twist barrel. Let us know what you come up with.
