I'm considering a semi-custom build in .260 remington. I want to use it as a replacement for my .270. I don't like the recoil from my .270 and was wondering if the .260 shooting something like a 130 gr. Berger VLD would be a viable alternative for big game (mule deer, antelope & elk out to 500 yards?) Also, Hornady has thier new GMX 120 gr. in .264 cal... and I think that may closely replicate the .270 in 130 gr. performance. What do you all out there think? Also, what seems to be the best barrel length for a .260? Thanks to everyone in advance!
