I just was looking back through this thread and saw my mistake. It should have read "147 ELD-M".


You did not "seen" anything, you "saw" it.

I've got a bunch of the 136 L's so am going to give this load a try in my .260.
Thanks!

I just picked up some 139 scenars.

Anyone have good load info? I'm thinking around 42 grains of H4350. Maybe try R26?

Yes sir... 42-42.5gr H4350 will be right in there

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

Looks like a great day to pretend you're not a phony...

My wife's 20" CTR .260 runs the 139 Scenar at 2725fps with 42.5gr IMR 4350. Our son killed a deer and an antelope with that bullet last year.

43.5 grains IMR4350 behind the 130 Accubonds clocked 2778 out of the same rifle today, she pounded steel/rocks out to 560... and didn't miss. She and the kids will be shooting that load at deer, elk, and antelope this fall.


You better pray to the God of Skinny Punks that this wind doesn't pick up......

I have some Benchmark laying around.....any opinions on using this with 130gr Bergers in a 20" barrel? Not a ton of info out there on anything over 120gr with this powder. Maybe start at 36.5gr and work my way up?

I have a new Tikka, and have gained confidence reading through theses pages.
My 260 is going to be used for elk this fall.
The 130's I intend to practice with, later fine tune with some 140's.

Thank you gentlemen for sharing your experiences.

Who has shot the 100g Barnes TTSX in your 260 Rem? What results did you have? H-4350 works great in mine with other 100g loads so I'm guessing it would with the Barnes as well.
