    260 Rem.

    Thinking about buying a Remington 700 in 260. Also thinking about running with the Barnes long range x bullet in 127gr. What's people's experience and thoughts with this caliber?

    Finally got around to shooting this gun. Was on a budget so I decided to go with a vortex crossfire 4-12x44. For the money, I think it's a good scope. Here's the group I got with 60 gr. of imr 4350 and 130 gr Barnes ttsx. I'm pretty happy with the whole outfit!
