    I use 120 grain bullets in my 6.5x55 which has a slightly larger case capacity than the .260. I think 45 grains of 4350 was the load; same as with 129 grainers. Check Hodgdon's website for loads... ~Muir

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    Biglad, 4350 should work well in the 260. Depending on barrel length, 2900fps should be achieveable with the 120's, the 85 should do 3200fps without much difficulty.

    I really think 120gr is the ideal weight for the 260rem. If you have them, try some faster powder's like Benchmark or RL15. Mine certainly seems to like a lighter charge of fast powder much better than a full case of slow stuff.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    +1 what CD says " I really think 120gr is the ideal weight for the 260rem. If you have them, try some faster powder's like Benchmark or RL15. Mine certainly seems to like a lighter charge of fast powder much better than a full case of slow stuff."

    FWIW - I am using the Nosler recommended top load for RL15 + 120 NBT, in Nosler brass, which gives 2895fps from a 22" LW barrel 1:9 twist. Consistent 7fps overall spread on muzzle velocity, and .3MOA. All a bit academic I know, but it drops fallow and roe with no great meat damage.

    Might be worth a try if you can scrounge a cup of RL15 to test.
