Does anyone have the good the bad and the ugly on these?

I own 3 and have about 10,000 rounds fired through them so far. They rock. What do you need to know?

Zak, tell us about the one in 260 Rem. Is that the one that you are currently using most often?

The AW 2.0 with the 260 barrel is my favorite right now. I got that barrel put on a dialed in just before last year's Steel Safari and then won the match with it (used it for 2nd this year). It has under 2000 rounds right now and shoot great. Recoil is less than 308, but the ballistics still beat factory 190gr 300WM. My original AWP just got a 6.5x47 Lapua barrel which promised to almost match 260 ballistics using a little smaller case, but I am still sorting out loads for that one.

Man! for punching paper, that ought to make people sit up and listen. None of my (old) reloading manuals have much data on the 260 Rem. How comparable is the terminal energy with the 300WM?

On a warm day at Denver altitude, the 139gr Scenars shot at 2820fps will still be going 1800 fps at 1000 yards.

The 6.5mm bullets have been used to take large game (moose & elk) in Europe for ages.
