    i have a 260 rem. custom built gun
    i found that it shoots 42 gr of h4350 pretty well but a guy that i know shoots the high power rifle class uses h1000 in his 260 with outstanding results so i tried a few loads and was he right. low pressure with faster bullets and accuracy was outstanding. .3 @ 100 five shots
    I have a bunch of magpro which is just a little faster than h1000 but i can not find any loading data for my 260 on it so i was wondering if someone with quick loads could be so kind to help me out.

    bullets to use are 139 Lapua, 140 Amax and 142 smks?
    if you wish not to post results please just email me marty.bryant@gmail.com

    thanks
