I have a 24 inch barrel 8 twist 260 Remington. So far it shoots every good bullet I try into tight little groups. Smaller in fact than I expected. I ordered 3 boxes of the Match Burners yesterday and I expect they will shoot just fine as so far it seems my barrel is all about 140 gr bullets. For the hunting it will do my shooting will be across a 300 yard wide pasture up against a dense treeline. Normally I go out there and pour a thin line of corn along the timberline for several hundred yards, the hogs come out and eat their way up the treeline to my left where I put out 20 pounds of corn. Really just want to know if I will have to make CNS hits or will the bullet expand enough for chest hits not involving the spine. Is it a soft or a hard bullet?
