I have an opportunity to buy a remington 700 mountain rifle in 260 remington. Wondering if anyone has had any experience with one and what you think the approximate value is? He is asking $500

If it ain't beat to hell, I'd jump on it!

Is it a DM?

It's my dad who has it. I will pick it up from him this weekend. Lets talk scopes that will really bring it together. I am thinking Leupold vx3 2.5-8. What say you?

My wife shoots that same rifle, it has a 3.5x10-40 Leup VX3 and she loves it. I like the idea of a 2.5-8 though!

Sounds like a great buy for $500, I would also think about a 6X42, the 2.5-8X36 is one of the nicest scopes they make and a good match for a 260 Rem. The 1 in 9 twist they have on them will stabilize all but the very longest of 6.5 mm slugs. Nice buy.

That's what's on my 7-08 MR. It's a nice match. If you've not yet used Talley LW's- this is the time! smile

A Swaro Z3 3-9x36 would be nice too, I bet, but a lot more money. I've got the next size up on a Kimber and it is a heck of a riflescope.

That, or a FXII 6x36. And I ain't even a Leupold guy.

Then, take your Dad out for a NICE meal!

My favorite 700 of all time. 2.8-8 is perfection on it.

While I'm no fan of the .260, even I would buy this in a heartbeat!

As far as a scope for it goes, either the Leupold 2x7. or the 2.5x8 would work for me (and does on my two .280 Mt rifles.

Either case, you'll love that one!!

Respects,

Richard

I haven't worked very much with Barnes in the 260 Rem but with other bullets IMR 4350 and H 4350 are hard to beat IMO. My current 260 has been doing very well with H 4350 and 140's going to use it as well for the 120-130 gr bullets as well. There are lots of other great powders for the 260.

Honest question. I've got a couple of these....30/06 DBM and a regular 7x57. I like them and everything but why do people rave about them so much?

Light weight, great handling, look good with the walnut stock. What's not to like. Mine is a 6.5x257AI. I really like the 129gr Hornadys, and 140gr Bergers aren't anything to sneeze at, either. 2-7 VXII on top, but the 2.5-8 or the straight 6 FXII would be equally at home.

I too have one in 270. I think it is because with the mtn rifle especially the older blue walnut it is one of the few truly lightweight classic stocked rifles available ie they are beautiful. Lets face it many of the other offerings out there have sort of chunky overweight stocks and while the lighter weight barrel of the mtn rifle may heat up faster than a std weight barrel for hunting that is pretty moot as more than 1-2 shots at a big game animal is rarely offered. So basically other than some of the Montana's by Kimberly and some of the other higher end mfg. it is the only classic stocked lightweight out there . Yes there is the model 70 fwt but some prefer the checkering style of the Remington and some prefer the forend treatment. I like both but prefer the Remington
