    building a 6.5 cm or rem 260

    Here are my observations between the two which most have been said. I have a 260 rem FWIW. 6.5 CM can do most of what the 260 can but more efficient using less powder. Ammo is everywhere with new stuff coming out everyday it seems like. Huge base and following so if you aren't a reloader then I...

    Necking down .308 to .260 problem

    I use the same brass and you have to use a small base die then turn the necks. ive found that LC military brass necks range from about .013-.018" thick. if you have doubts what is causing this, take a black permanent marker and color the top half of a case. then run it through the action and...

    Over Thinking Consistency?

    Prepare yourself for a few random thoughts that actually might have some weight to them. Probably not though. Would this affect the consistency of velocity and/or groups: 1) Testing with new/small base sized brass and then go to bumping the shoulders back after that? - My...

    LC Brass - how important is it to sort it by year?

    So lets stir the pot even more. do you sort by weight, year, or both? it seems like weight would be more important but i could be wrong. corndog, did your brass that had a 60 fps difference have the same weight as the other and it was just a year difference or was it a year and weight difference?

    Subsonic Brass Prep Question

    agree 100%. I care more about shot placement than anything else. I just prefer expansion for a better kill. I'll give it a shot sometime and see what happens. mine loads are still producing a 1 moa group at 100 which in my mind isn't bad for subs.

    Subsonic Brass Prep Question

    I have thought about doing those, I will just need to find a source for lead but that does seem to be the way I will more that likely head. do you get good expansion on solid lead projectiles? I may try to do some hunting with these only if I can get good expansion. If I do end up hunting with...

    Forming Brass into a Different Cartridge How-To, Please.

    I make 260 Remington out of 308 so I size down but it should be the same basic process. these are the steps I take to do this and you should follow something similar. 1) Make sure your brass is clean and inspect for any abnormalities. when in doubt, through it out. A $1 piece of brass is not...

    Don't get your hopes up. no one is going to go to jail. they never do which is why they aren't worried about repercussions.

    .260 Remington

    I was just about to question running that much powder in mine and not having any pressure signs. I have seen most people running around 43 grs and not many over the 44 mark. I ran 44.4 grs of H4350 with an average of 3016 and an sd of 9 this past weekend. I am going to try to go up towards 44.8...

    260 Rem Brass Issues

    well lesson learned for sure. I've been so focused on everything else I forgot about bumping the shoulders back properly. I checked last night because it finally hit that I haven't checked the shoulders.

    260 Rem Brass Issues

    Its case head separation for sure. I have holes with burn marks about a 1/2 inch up from the base. I didn't have any flattened primers, ejector marks, heavy bolt, nothing. just the split around the case head. What is weird is that on the rounds that split, it pushed the bullets about 80fps...
