I am not familiar with the model, but for E5000 it had best be a nice one.

My *comment* is, what is your reason for selecting .260 Remington? It is ballistically comparable to a 6.5 Swede but is not widely used even here. Do you have ammunition available or do you handload?

My comments would be that you have selected a very fine weapon asnd one of the finest telescopic sightrs ever made. It will serve you well! :)

It will be your weapon, and you should choose the calibre. If it was going to be my weapon, I would choose 6.5X55 Swede over 260, simply for similar performance and world wide availability of asmmunition.
