129 gr Hornady Interlock with 49.9 gr H4831sc. Little stainless Model 7 has always shot this load stupid accurate and this past cold drizzley Monday did it again. After checking at 50 shot a 1 hole 3 shot group at 100. It was still 1" high but 3/4" left. Hole in wet target was about 1/2" wide. Moved 2 clicks right and put it away. It has no right to shoot this well but has been consistent at 1" or so with this load.

Am I off or does it seem that 42.0 grains of H4350 under the 120TTSX seems light? My 130 VLD load is 43.5 H4350.

Agreed, I am running 45gr's under a 123gr Scenar in my GAP 260.

I have tried H4350 in my 260 from 123 to 140 gr. My barrel does not care for it. I tried lots of loads and ES /SD numbers were awful, and it showed down range. I have a big jug of H4350 sitting on my shelf and no current use for it. However, H4831 works awesome with 140's. Varget / IMR 4064 works great with 123- 130's. All powders provide single digit ES. My current load is 40.1grs Varget with 130 VLD Hunting, shoots bugholes at 100 yards and 1 1/4" groups at 400 yards with less than 1" vertical.

I just ran some ladder tests today using a 22" 1:9".

With the 120 grain TTSX and H4350, primer flattening started to show at 42.2, so their data is accurate on that one.

In the 22", all 120 loads tested peaked out at around 2800 and then started showing some primer flattening much beyond that. Tried H414, H4530, and IMR 4831.

Best for the 120 TTSX was 41.8 of H4350, which was just shy 2800 (2795 average), again from a 22" barrel.

42.8 of IMR 4831 was very accurate, but slower at an average of 2700, but it will work well if that is the powder on hand.

I have tried H4831sc with the 120 before, and it was not a good combination, so would not recommend it with the 120.

Worked with the 100 TTSX also. 44.7 of H414 was the tightest load of the day with an average of 3065 fps. H414 could push it much faster, well north of 3100, but the slower load was much tighter, and very mild on the shoulder.

Still need to try H4350 with the 100's.

All loads were with Lapua brass and F210M's.

Take a look at Ramshot Hunter, it's a very good performing powder for me in the 260 Remington. With the 120 TTSX I use 45 gr Hunter. With the 120 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip, I use 48 gr of Ramshot Hunter.

Would if I could find any. Working with what I can find.

Just managed to find a few pounds of H4350 again and thought I'd hit the lotto.

That's pretty good data on the 140s. Some of the rest is lite. I run up to 47gr of H4350 with a 123 Scenar, for example. Have done so in 100+ degree temps and never the first pressure sign (GAP NT). With the 127LRX 45.0-45.3gr of H4350 gives phenomenal accuracy and 2850-2900fps (22" ULA). Thanks for posting. Need to find time to load some 100TTSX for the wife and kids.

Remember that a monolithc bullet builds a lot more pressure than a lead core bullet. therefore the reason for the lighter powder loads in the manual. Barnes bullets are grooved to relieve this pressure. Also keep in mind that due to pressure buildup, seating should move away from the lands rather than closer to the lands

Besides .260 brass; which brass has the least amount of problems resizing to .260; 7mm08 or .308? I am acquiring a .260 and finding 260 brass seems to be a problem unless I buy the expensive brass.

Picked up a 260 3 wks a go, haven't seen any 260 brass or reasonable priced factory loads for it either. Did buy a set of RCBS dies. I pulled 2 boxes of WW once fired 243 Winchester brass off the shelf, lube the case& necks good inside and out and size, you have instant 260's. I'd rather have the right headstamped brass but these will work (and are) until I find some new Remington or drop big bucks for Lapua. I sure didn't have to ream or turn necks either. Magnum Man

jeffbird, I found the exact same max for Superformance with a 127 LRX before they made this available. I used 6.5 Creedmore data and started low for 130 grain bullets in the Hornady Manual. I had the powder and really wanted to give it a try and the case volumes were really close at that bullet weight. Turns out 46.5 gr Superformance with a 127 LRX is right where my Savage model 11 likes to shoot.

My Tikker likes 125 NPTs and H4831. I get 2750fps out of this rather mild load. Works great on game. Will be working up a load for a new Remington 700/8 twist when weather permits.

AR Comp and a 100 grain Partition or Ballistic Tip is a very fast stepping and accurate combination, that I recently enjoyed discovering...

Finally got my tikka 260 together and got to do a little shooting. I started out with some factory nosler with 125gr partitions and was less than impressed I had loaded up some 139gr lapua scenear's and as I worked up the better my groups got I was using 4831SC ended at 45.5 and I'm real happy with the way it was shooting them. They avg right at 2710 should I leave it at that or work up a little more?

Factory lists 42 grains with a 95 grain Bullet...

mine happens to be 43.5 grains...developed that on my own and my Rugers, and Model 70 seem to be just fine with it....
