If my 260 is used in the field it would most likely be on medium size animals. Perhaps a long shot on whitetail.. Don`t know what the future holds but if I connected on a 200+ yard shot, it would be a first for me... My longest shot to date is 135yds with my FA`s 41... As my friend Ken (500WE) said: "It will be another dimension for you"....


We can so stretch this distance

I use Once Fired Hornady .308 Win Match brass necked down in all my .260 Remington firearms. Works like a champ.
If you need........let me know. I have a........bit.


Zee Not sure if you know this,, But James may not know it either.
When necking up or down for the 260 it is better to use 243 Brass and neck up.
When using 308 and necking down,,, Sometimes a donut is created and it should be removed. The other thing is the necking down creates a thicker neck and this can cause a little more pressure or even cause the bullet seating to become a problem.
Zee maybe you checked the brass and remedied all this. Not sure.
In the meantime Lapua makes some really nice brass now. But I never bought any, since I had so much 243 to choose from.

You will be surprised what it can do. I worked up some computer drop data for my Encore 260 barrel. I dialed in the Come-Up's for 600 yards and put four out of five on a 10" plate the first time. I was hitting the top edge or I would have hit with all five shots. The four hits were in around a four inch group. I had a 20X Super Sniper rifle scope on it when I shot the steel at 600.
I am using 243 Winchester brass at the moment.
Just playing at the Range mine really likes 107 grain Sierra Match Kings.

Bob, You are way beyond my "pay grade" with your long range ability... Shooting over 100 yards is new to me..

It?s like finally taking the training wheels off and realizing you can go fast. 😁
