Good Die set for 260 remington???

Does anyone have experience with a good die set for 260 remington? I'm willing to spend up to about $80 max for a good set of dies for my 260 rem.

I don't have experience with them in that caliber, but I recommend Forster rifle dies. The Benchrest series is in your price range, and has the same sliding sleeve seater design as the Ultra Benchrest series, just without the micrometer adjustment. The sliding sleeve (also like the Redding Competition seater) is what gives it accuracy; the micrometer adjustment is for convenience.

I've used my set of Redding dies (with competition seater die) for my M700VLS in .260 for over a decade, they are top-notch. I get well under moa for the rifle's best loads, and measured run-out is near zero.

Encore for the Reddings. My Sako 260 could not shoot any better that it does now.
