Default Remington .260

Can anyone tell me what models besides the model 7 that Remington currently manufactures in .260. I know you can get it in several models of 700 but all the information I have seen says that they only make it at this time in model 7...

The Remington website is perhaps one of the most useless websites associated with the firearms industry. They won't tell you about what they are doing now, but will helpfully list tons of obsolete models right in with the current ones, thus creating a cloud of uncertainty and ambiguity concerning their product line.

Don't feel bad about being confused as to what Remington does or does not offer after visiting their website, just about everyone else comes away with the same impression.

I will suggest here that the product is not significantly better than the website, and that you would be much better off taking a look at Tikkas, Weatherby Vanguards, Howas, Winchesters, Brownings and even Savages - Any one of which is better designed and better made than any Remington.

Just saying...

The Savage Site allows a caliber-specific search.

Click caliber, then 260 Rem. There should be six firearms currently listed.

I currently own a recent Savage Model 10 Predator Hunter Max I in the chambering, and have built and competed at 1Kyd with an F Open custom built on a then-new 2001 10FP .260, featuring a McMillan A3 factory pillar bedded Tactical stock, SSS Trigger, Mueller 8-32x44 side focus fine crosshair/target dot scope, and an L-W 28" 1:8" Savage drop-in varmint profile barrel. They are both excellent shooters. The chambering (in both barrel lengths) enjoys a snappy charge (43.5-44.0gr H-4350, consider this right up there at max) and the 140 and 142gr bullet selections. My hunting load is the Nosler 140gr Accubond and 43.8gr of H-4350. Start lower and work up.

That's a hell of a feat to shoot/compete at 1k yards with a scope like a Mueller. I'd like to watch that.
What moa base are you running,that scope only has 40 moa total adjustment range to begin with,and the glass isn't very clear.And,you're shooting a fine crosshair with a target dot on top of that.

I have two Mueller 8.5-25 Eradicator scopes that I used on target 22lr's,they worked fine for that,but shooting long range wasn't something that I'd do with them.
All my long range optics have 100 moa of adjustment,and cost about 5x what the Mueller cost,and they are on the low end price for long range scopes.

TXhillbilly;

I am saddened by your disbelief. In a way, I could be prompted to ask how many times you have used the Mueller 8-32x44 at any distance.

To be painfully truthful, my 1000yd shooting days are long past; since a year or two after I had a serious heart attack in 2004. My main issue is with pulling butts.

Since then I have only acquired a the Mueller in the last two years, and my comp has been limited to 250yd and under. I used my first one for a year, competing against some serious BR rifles, and while I don't win, I compete satisfactorily. Several competitors have tried out my Mueller, and they approve, FWIW. I purchased another this past spring for my Savage 11VT .223, and I like it equally.

Believe me, I would love to be able to spend in your price range, but that's just not possible. FWIW, I competed for several years at 1000yd using a humble Tasco 6-24x42 Varmint/Target MilDot. I was very happy with the outcomes, and replacing the Tasco with the Mueller has been an eye opening experience. In my eyes, it resolves essentially all my previous gripes. With the Tasco, I learned a lot about wind and mirage, and the lesson may well continue on a higher level with the Mueller. Personally, I think they deserve a better rap.

As for wanting to see me compete at 1000yd with the Mueller, you may get your chance. My Wife and I are planning a move to or near San Angelo, and I am making the move mainly (for my own part) as a bid to get back onto the longer ranges. So keep an eye/ear cocked, I may be in your midst in the next year or so. Looking forward to the opportunity to let seeing be believing; heck, I'd love to see it, too...

Now, for the nuts and bolts. The Savage Custom has a Ken Farrel 20MOA base ca. 2001. I experimented with shimming and bedding the base so the Tasco's 100yd zero shoots from about 5 clicks from bottoming out the elevation turret. The elevation requirement with the L-W 28" barrel to get to 1000yd would be at or just shy of 30MOA above that. Replacing the rings with low 30MM Zee's (the Farrel towers above the barrel), the 100yd zero is nearly identical to the Tasco's. There is no issue with the elevation adjustments.

The base's combined slope seems to run at about 33MOA.

Greg

PS I have totally rewritten this post as it was originally a knee-jerk hostile response. No need for that.

I wasn't trying to be a jackass. I just know from owning 2 Mueller scopes that they aren't what I'd call a Long Range scope. Most scopes don't perform well enough visually when you get right at the end of the adjustment travel capability. If you can do that,then my hats off to you.

Heck yeah,You get moved down here I'd come down to shoot with you. I don't compete because of my work schedule-I only get a weekend off every 7 weeks,but we shoot out to 1200 yards up at the ranch all the time except for hunting season.

I could care less about shooting at anything beyond 300 yards, so all of the "long range shooting" BS is a moot point here.
