    I have two questions one is obvious what is the barrel twist of the Remington XP-100R in 260rem and my second one is what is a good starting load(having never shot a rifle caliber handgun).

    Not sure what the twist is I have a xp barrel that I just took off and installed a new barrel for a customer the factory barrel is a 260 rem I will check the twist for you in the morning.

    As for loading start just like a rifle with rifle loads and work up to the best accuracy load just like a rifle.

    The barrel will stabilize a 130 grain Berger. I believe I measured it at 1-9.

    I am using IMR4350 but when I run out of it will switch to Varget. The IMR4350 gives decent groups.

    As was said just use your reloading manual and work up.
