That can't be... everyone knows you have to have a 7mm or 300win to kill an elk...


Team fake "professional hunting guide" member...

Do you really think you're smart enough to fool everyone? You're not... everyone knows you're a fake

Please post more fake coyote hunting pictures on Facebook...

Just like every other cartridge speed/energy/effectivness question...bullets take center stage.

A good B/C bullet started at X velocity will be doing the same speed at 600 yards as a $hit B/C bullet started at X velocity at 400 yards...and so on.

Don't fret the round...it'll do just fine if you do your part.


All women want me. There's no point in denying it, nor trying to change their nature.

It is something I have come to accept.

If you can get your rifle to do what Berger says in the attached link it should not be to difficult. I have some 135 classic hunters to try .584 BC the 130 has .552. Looks great on paper if you can put one in the boiler room. That AMAX is a good bullet as well.

Good luck and shoot straight

Wow. If a 260 can do all of that, just imagine what a 6.5 Creedmore would do. T-Rex @ 1000?

Worked for a gunshop that specialized in tuning rifles. 260 was our main guys favorite round, took a whitetail at 660yd with his model 7 youth. He had a hart barrel on it and if I'm not mistaken it was only 20in.

Probably sit in the truck and admire the .260 in action! 🤓

No but I have seen one personally kill a grizzly at just beyond 1k

IMR 4350 in the 6.5 looks like it's going to give me about 60 FPS gains, still with single digit ES, SDs.


I forgot to post a followup to this. I found the Re26 to be fantastic with the 147 ELD-M. I got it to near 3000 fps, but it was a bit warm and the es was not good. I backed down to 2880 and it shot real well. I finally backed down to 2825 fps with a short es. This load is under moa easily and mostly around 1/2 moa-depending on how well my eye is working that day. The 140 Partition blems that I bought to try shot like crap, but I really got high velocity with the Re 26.

One interesting thing that I found, was that after sighting the 147 in at 200 yards, subsequent dialing on my scope exactly matched my 129 Interlock load even though it is 200 fps slower.

In my rifle, the IMR4350 was faster than H4350, using 129 Interlocks. The IMR 4350 was just behind my Re17 load, which produced just over 3000 fps.

You did not "seen" anything, you "saw" it.
A "creek" has water in it, a "crick" is what you get in your neck.
Liberals with guns are nothing but hypocrites.

First he was a 308 stunt shooter. Now he's outdone himself with the 260! Sheesh! Proving yet again, it's the hunter. Nice pics Pat, thanks for sharing. Getting tempted to take my 6.5 CM elk hunting too!
