If only Remington had spent the money and time pushing .260 the way Hornady did the CM’s.The .260 like the .243, feeds awesome and brass and data are in abundance. They'll do everything the CMs will do but not a lot of factory longrange ammo options. But thanks to the CMs 6.5 and 6mm bullets are abundant as well as fast barrels. One hand washes the other. The .260 and .243 just won't go mainstream for the long game. The marketing power behind the CMs is a force to be reckoned with.
Too true. For me when I made the switch to 6.5 it was about familiarity with the case. Ive got the .308, 7mm-08 and .243. The other deciding factor was that I reload all I can anyway and I wanted that extra case capacity and speed I could get out of the .260. Personally for me I’d never switch from my 260 but if I did it’d be to shoot the new blackjack .25 bullets. The 6mm never blew my skirt up and I’m not afraid of recoil.This is exactly what pushed me to the 6.5CR over the 260 when I switched from 308 5-6 years ago. Factory ammo was the big gig.
Send the PRS an email or contact via WebInfo. I requested a few additions to the member page and they were quick and receptive. I am now "Complete". I'm so glad we get to upload our own pictures.
Improved ballistics have zero positive effect on score if you’re giving up shot feedback. The reason I dropped the 6.5s for big matches is the top shooters are to the point of making micro adjustments shot to shot to keep their group not only on the plate but totally centered up. Nothing wrong with that 260, but it’s going to limit you somewhat in this game.
