I traded my neighbor my old somewhat scratched up Ruger #1V 220 Swift with dies and what brass I had for a LNIB Remington Model 7 stainless synthetic in 260 REM and a nice little chunk of cash . I had a rifle just like this before that I got the year they unveiled the 260 think that was about 1996 , anyway I sold that one and I wanted another . I had actually located this rifle for my neighbor a couple years ago and I think he's fired it perhaps 20 times since then !
I have dies already so Friday I ordered 100 pieces of Lapua brass . The 260 I had before showed a distinct liking for the Nosler 125 PT and since I have about four full boxes of them that's what I'll try and shoot in this rifle .
My old 260 had a3-9 Swarovski on top this one will most likely get a nice old Leupold Vari XIII 3.5-10x40AO I've had since the beginning of time .
