Re: reloading 260





my 260 is awesome EXCEPT the cold bore shot. always 1/2 inch out of the rest of the group. 2nd and 3rd shot are usually one hole,,,,well always one hole as you can see from the pics. even counting the cold bore shot at 500 yards its a tight shooter. tight enough for a long shot at a deer. all the groups pictured are 3 shot groups

I have found that if I use military LC LR head stamp brass (sniper brass)and neck it down the groups are much better than the pics shown. i have several different recipies for the 260 and will take more pics this weekend.

Re: reloading 260

For deer hunting I used 45g RL-19 with a 130g TSX. This gives me a.5 or less group and it wacks the deer. I took 3 deer this year and never had a deer move more than 10 yards at ranges out to 190 yards. First year with this caliber and I'm a fan.

my first cooment was to use the 100 bt i use it out of my model 7 had quite a few 1 kill shots but i see you already used it. im using w-760 which is the same as 414 have to check load data but i had trouble getting 3000 out of mine. maybe ill rety it in spring. if you havent hunted with it yet the 100 bt is very destrutive. i noticed with my model 7 if i let the barrel cool a little for 3rd shot it helps the group.

Re: reloading 260

RL19 is my go to. have also had good results with Varget which any caliber that the parent case is the 308 win, Varget will always work. I also got 2 pounds of RL17 to try but sold it to a friend when I realized even if it worked which I am sure it would since it has about the same burn as 4350 but if it did work how would I get more when needed, staying with RL19. For all the lotto winners, I hear V-V N130 is good too but too much dough for my wallet.
I also have tried good Ole' 4064 but its only for in the summer, I cant get it to shoot worth a darn in the cold temps. also dont mind my OAL numbers, some were measured from base of the case to the tip of the bullet and then I started measuring from base of the case to the ogive of the bullet with a comparator.
