Hey guys. Going to build a first long range deer rifle and short range elk rifle for the kids. I think I'm down to these two cartridges. From the research that I've done the ballistics are virtually the same. I will however be running the 140 bergers and want to be able to fit the cartridges in the mag. Not sure if I'll need to actually seat the bullets to the rifling but if I do, in a .260 is there sufficient room in the mag for a long seated 140? This would obviously be a short action chamber for a .308. Thanks

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
