Kilotanker, did you have to use a drop tube to get all that RL 26 in the case?
I loaded at test with 45 grns of RL 23 and 140 grn RDF's, and it was in the neck.....
Keep your Axe sharp and your powder dry.

I use R17 in my Tikka 260 and accuracy is terrific. For my brother’s Bergara 6.5 CM I was able to find some H4350 and quickly found a great load. Folks talk about the temp sensitivity of R17, and I’m sure they are right, but for my hunting purposes I’ve had no issues at all. For long range target shooting, I’d probably switch over to H4350.
