      curious what velocity you were getting with teh 150 pergenines. I am wondering if my chrono is off. i averaged 3180 with 80 grains and was around .3 of an inch at about the same mabye .5' with 81 grains and was only 3220. with that said due to my brake i just added had the chrono at about 14'. that was with h1000. these bullets show serioud promise need to try them on a critter hopefully. thanks

      EX I've got a couple of hundred rounds through each of the two .260's. The Rem is the better shooter consistently but both will hold MOA with a multitude of different bullets and loads.

      I saw you recently purchased one of these rifles.(Ruger M77 Hawkeye FTW special edition in .260)
      I'm looking at the same exact rifle for my Wife. I too was looking at that Remington Model 700 5-R Series Gen 2 rifles also in 260 rem. but was wondering if it would be a nicer rifle than the Ruger?

      I like the lighter weight of the Ruger rifle.

      Have you had a chance to shoot it yet? Any info you have on that new Ruger rifle would really be appreciated. I can't find much info on it.
      Thanks,
      Mike

      Geo I'll keep watching them. I have one neighbor that not only doesn't mind me shooting his, he keeps reminding me I'm welcome. Where they are right now they guy is just a complete jackass.

      If however I can get them over to my place or the "good neighbor" I'll definitely let you know.

      My brother is setting up another thermal hunt after deer season. The key is to have plenty of fresh places to hunt that have plenty of feed. If you think you and your neighbors and maybe your friend with the 1000 acres would like to hunt with us on their place one or two nights I will ask my brother. We can take turns with our ar's with the thermals and they can keep us safe by telling us wheather or not we can shoot in whatever direction. PM what you think.

      Thanks for the heads up. Left out the 0 on m40.
      How the heck do you edit, can't seem to locate the edit button?

      I know this is a personal preference question, however, your input is always appreciated. I am thinking about an AR. What caliber 308 or 6.5?

      Wild rose- i have not put them opn a scale but the TI is rated at 5.9 , the supergrade at 7.75 and the sendero at 8.5 . of course adding scopes, mts and a brake will change it. i carried my 7 mmmag sendero on rocky mtn bighhorn sheep hunt. i did not have the TI at the time. all are probably a lot less than your Heavy one.

      I'm not a RUM shooter so without spending a good bit of time digging around for load info I can't really give you an intelligent answer. I've pushed 140's to over 3400fps with ease in the 7STW and the rum has considerably higher case capacity so it might be within the realm of reason that they are especially if they have a long barrel and are shooting slow powders like H1000.
