Reloading is really where the 260 remington ammo shine, enabling the reloader to unlock the performance from the calibre. The 85-grain Sierra hollow points loaded with 48-grain of Hodgdons H4350 powder speed along at 3,105fps velocity with 1,820ft/lb energy from a 22in barrel.
This is a great fox load with down-range performance zeroed at 100 yards of -2.6in low at 200 yards and only -11in low at 300 yards. It is very accurate with sub-1in groups and has very fast expansion of the bullet. Hornady and Nosler both make a 100-grain bullet, the former a soft point and the latter a ballistic tip.
Thousands of excess 6.5×55 Swedish Mauser rifles were shipped and sold abroad after Sweden modernized their military service weapon. Almost magical in its allure was the cartridge itself, which contained a very long, very slim, very lethal-looking projectile in a cartridge casing with a seemingly enough capacity for powder.
The Swedish Mauser was available to American hunters, although ammunition was scarce for quite some time. There was such a demand for American factory made ammunition when it became available that its performance suffered as a result. Distrust of Swedish metalwork was a major factor in this. Regardless, hand loaders in the United States were doing their best to maximize the potential of the 6.5×55, as were their counterparts elsewhere. The 6.5×55 gained popularity after several hunters lauded its effectiveness in magazine articles.
Competitive target shooters in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand tried out the 6.5mm bore, and the results were spectacular. It was possible to fire the 6.5 with minimal recoil and achieve low bullet drop and wind drift. The simplest 140 grain projectiles shot with pinpoint precision. However, the.308 Winchester case design won over and continues to win over a lot of competitive shooters. Necking down the.308 case to 6.5mm was a natural move given that experienced competitive shooters frequently employ wildcat cartridge designs to achieve optimal performance.
Both the remington.260 ammo and the 6.5-08 wildcat produced the same velocities. However, the wildcat chambering had certain advantages, such as better chamber tolerance control during reamer design and access to cheap, readily available U.S. brass. Although it was not a primary concern, the wildcat cartridge could be employed in short action rifles that fed from magazines.
The 6.5-08 wildcat with the 139 grain Lapua Scenar projectile was a favorite of a select few competitive shooters by the end of the 1980s. The wildcat’s popularity as a competitive vehicle grew steadily through the 1990s. As with pistols, hunting rifles were starting to show up with the wildcat chambering. When replacing a worn barrel, the 6.5-08 was a great choice as an upgrade. Rifles chambered with the 243 Winchester cartridge. The wildcat’s heavier, deeper penetrating bullets than the.243’s flat trajectory and light recoil made it an excellent choice for the short action.
