    I've got some 260 Rem data, but not that specific load. I like to use the Hornady manual and it says for RL-19 a maximum of 47.9 gr with 120/123/129 gr bullets. Looking back at my notes, I had a load with 123 gr A-Max which performed at 46.2 gr RL-19. As always, you will need to work up your loads, but I would suggest 45.0 gr would be a good place to start. Also note my rifle is throated for rounds measuring up to 2.9 inches and your throating may be quite different. For some unexplained reason RL-19 doesn't seem to be one of my favourites. I also have half a tub of RL-22 to try and some H4831 and N165. These four powders are all good for velocity in your choice of bullet weight.

    260 Rem loads, lets see them!

    Good luck. JCS

    Adrian. Following up on Muir's point. Why don't you get yourself a manual for Christmas? There's a new Berger manual out, the Lee is a good one too and as I posted above, the Hornady is my favourite based on layout. Regards JCS

    Seriously? You worked it out from start to finish and can't remember it? Have you seen a neurologist?? I thought I was getting bad! Of course, i can't remember my kids birthdays but I can recall 6-digit bullet mold designations from 40 years ago! ~Muir
