Try some Federal American Eagle 158gr .357mag. Gets 1500fps with my Ruger Blackhawk 6 1/2" barrel. Fed Fusion same thing with a little hollow point.
That's as hot as I want to go.
I think you need to check the accuracy of your chrony. Factory spacs for the American Eagle 158 gr 357 Magnum is 1240 fps. Some manufacturers are pretty close to their specs, many are actually lower, and some of the hot loads from the boutique ammo loaders actually read a bit higher. That's a bit higher. I doubt that any common brand will produce velocity of 260 fps over their claimed numbers!
