The 260 is going to be the next rifle I build. That is after I find a Model 70 action.
Doesn't have the recoil of my 300 WM 1000 yard gun.
It would be lighter then my 30-06 target rifle.
Better barrel life the the 243.
Better BC then the 308.
I think the 270 Win would be a better long range gun now that you can find match bullets for it...............but I already have a 270 Wn in a Model 70.
Taking all above into account, the 260 has to be my next Model 70.
