127 LRX
0.050" jump (OAL is about 2.870")
WW7-08 brass necked down
210m
45.6gr H4350

2920fps from a 22" barreled GAP 260. That velocity is based on come ups out to 700 yards measured at 7500' ASL and has held true up to almost 10,000'ASL and down to 940' ASL.

Hot load so start around 42.0 and work up. No pressure signs in my rifle, but 46.0 did start to show pressure and 46.3 had signs of pressure on most cases.

Anyone try Hodgden Superformance with 130g bullets? Based on the Barnes data posted earlier, it should be great velocity if it's accurate.

Barnes Data with a 120 gr TTSX looks great in the 260 Rem.

They list Superformance powder with a 120 TTSX or TSX :

41.7 gr Min @ 2697 fps and 46.3 c gr @ 2963

c = compressed load

Did some work with IMR 4451 in my Savage Predator Max.

Sierra 130 gr HPBT - 43 gr - Lapua case - CCI 200 - 2899 fps and accurate

129 gr Hornady Spire Point - 43 gr - Lapua case - CCI 200 - 2862 fps. Every other 6.5 mm gun I have owned loves this bullet except this one for some reason. Oh well it shoots lots of others great though.

Five shots at 100 yrds with an upper end load of R17 (2715fps), 22 " barrel, Berger 140 VLD-Hunting bullet, seated to about .015 off the lands. No pressure signs whatsoever.
Rifle was a bone stock tikka t-3 hunter (wood stock).

I found IMR4320 to be a diamond in the rough with my daughter's Rem Model 7 and the Sierra 120gr PH.

My Rem 700 shot really well with both IMR4064 and RL19 and the Sierra 120gr PH.

H4350 gets me 2925 with the 127 from a 22" tube. 3000 isn't out of the question if you're running a 26" as some are.

Planned to work on a new load this weekend for my .260 Remington with the Hornady 129 gr. SP Interlock. My Nosler brass had developed donuts so I decided to test some shorter Nosler 100 gr. Ballistic Tips instead. Not sure if this would do for hunting whitetail but it might be good for coyotes! Uhh... forgot to pack my chronograph too!

Six shots at 100 yards.

Bullet: Nosler 100 gr. Ballistic Tip
Powder: IMR-4064 41.0 grs.

I think my load was 48.5... Great group for 10 shots though.

More testing with the Hornady 129 gr. Spitzer Interlock. This load with Reloader 19 is showing potential but it's still not as good as my hunting load with the Nosler 125 gr. Partition. More work to be done.

Five shots at 100 yards with the Hornady 129 gr. (forgot to measure it)

Comments: Very good accuracy but need to get ES & SD down.

And five shots with the Nosler 125 gr. Partition.

This isn't really a game load but for the sake of science! I usually don't use ball powder for anything but H-414 really surprised me!

I shot some better groups but this is the only one I photographed...

Four shots at 100 yards (I blew one but it's still under one inch).

I have killed more than a few deer with the 100 gr BT out of my 260.
It is a death ray on them. Never caught a bullet to see what the retained rate was so all I can tell you is they work.
My vel. is 3250 FPS with H 414 and it shoots bug holes.


I may not be smart but I can lift heavy objects

I have a shotgun so I have no need for a 30-06.....

Good stuff. I am getting a rifle re-barreled to .260 right now. The 129 Hornady is my bullet of choice.

I got my rifle done on Friday and have been doing some load work since.

It is a 24-inch Rem-age barrel from Criterion and it is shooting everything that I put through it very well.

I have tried IMR 4451, H4350, IMR 4350,Re 17, and Re 19 so far with the 129 Interlock. Everything shot 1/2-1 moa at 200 yards, but all would have done better with a better shooter!

I also ran a few 120 Speers that I had and they shot well, too. The speers really liked Varget, but the other powders were fine, too.

I settled on two very good loads with the 129s for my go-to stuff this season.

44 grains of Re 17 got me 3010 fps with a 19 fps es on three shots over the chrono.

44.7 grains of IMR 4350 got me 2990. Both loads were easily under moa @ 200, even with me shooting.

This afternoon, I shot a handful of 143 Eld-x that my buddy gave me. I stoked 47 grains of H4831ssc under them and went to the range. They shot just as well as any of the other bullets and got 2700 ish fps mv.

This is my second Criterion barrel and I am really happy with it. My 7 mag barrel shoots just as well.

Anybody tried a 260 in a DPMS platform? I have wanted a LR308 for awhile as well as something in a 260. So I decided to build one and satisfy both wants. Used an 80% lower I had and ordered a McGowen Semi-HBAR barrel. Still waiting to get to the range and do a barrel break-in. Once that is done I am going to have to come up with a load for it. I'm thinking Berger VLD Hunting in either 130 or 140. This will be my first experience with both the rifle and the caliber. Plan on using it hunting even though it comes in at 10 pounds.
