    .260 120 grain load

    I had seen that but was wondering if N160 would be better. I think these bullets will seat a long way into the case, Barnes suggest 50 thou jump min and they look a long bullet. do you think 160 would privide better results as i want to produce the best hunting load possible. Will be using CCI200 primers and Lapua brass

    .260 120 grain load

    after some advise. I've been searching the web for load data. i've got a .260 Rem with 22" barrel and am going to be using 120 grain TTSX heads. Most the data I've seen suggests N160 for this bullet weight. I allready have lots of N140 from my .243, does anyone see any problems with trying this or not recommended, many thanks Mark

    .260 New Rifle

    Not sure, havn't fired any brass in it yet, but has a Border barrel so hope it isn't too sloppy. Not a new rifle but new to me

    .260 New Rifle

    The fireformed brass that i will drill and tap to fit the tool, do I leave "as is" or do I bump the shoulder back before modifying it?

    .260 New Rifle

    Hi, after some help please. Just brought a new rifle and want to develop loads for it. Will be buying new Lapua brass and was wondering about measuring seating depth. I have a Hornaday seating depth tool and am going to make a case for it from once fired brass. Should I bump the shoulder 2 Thou on this case as i will be doing this to all cases I load for the rifle or leave it as fireformed? I'm guessing I should bump the shoulder as this will affect my measurement if i understand correctly Many thanks Mark

    Cleaning barrel

    Can't see any copper in it?
  9. Hi, trying to clean my .243 T3 stainless. Have been shooting Nosler 80grn home loads. Prob put 300 through it so thought I'd clean it. Brought some wipe out and a nylon brush to try. Started with 2 wet patches ( black then grey) then put brush down bore guide and saturated it. Worked up into a foam with gentle scrub and left to soak for 1 hr. When I patched it out just pushed white foam out end of barrel. Recon I've fired maybe 1000 through it since new, shouldn't I be getting some copper out?

    80 Grain Nosler BT Powder

    Hi all, could do with some help please. I am shooting Nosler BT 80 Grain bullets from a Tikka T3 19" barrel. I have had to change powder due to supply problems and now have a choice of N140 or N160 Vhit. I brought a 1kg tub from the shop with a new box of heads (N140) but now a lot of people have said I should have got the N160, phoned the shop and they tell me the 140 is correct. can anyone help before I open the powder in case its not the best choice Many thanks Mark (forgot to say .243)
