I'm in the process of having a 260 rem built for semi long range deer hunting(700-800 yards) I'm trying to keep weight down, but still have a rifle that can perform accuracy wise, Rem. 700 SS action, Hogue full length aluminum bedded stock, Douglas #4 contour SS fluted barrel. One of my questions is can I get enough velocity out of a 22" barrel for what I want to do? I'd like to use a 140 grain bullet, any suggestions or loads that work for you guys? Any input on this project is welcome. I have a 300 ultra Sendero with Leupold BDC dial that I use with good success at long range, just looking for something a little lighter to pack around.
