Default Anyone know about the .260 Remington?

Does anyone know something about the .260 Remington... the external ballastics on this cartridge look remarkable... it look as if this would make a grat AR for midrange. Does anyone know if anyone other than DPMS carries it? Also, does anyone have a DPMS model?

The .260Rem is a great cartridge. It and its AI cousin have won several tactical rifle competitions. It's basicly an updated version of the 6.5x55 Swede.

Honestly, if I were building an AR strictly to kill paper, I'd build it in .243. The ballistics with either the Berger or DTAC (Sierra) 115 grain bullets are very impressive, and it's certainly enough for game up to medium sized deer.
