I hope you have a reloading manual. That would give you lots of info on which powders to use. You might start with a 120 grain bullet and then go up and/or down in weight from there to see which is more accurate. Just run your .243 brass through your .260 full length sizing die, trim to length, and you should then have good useable brass.

My 1:8 6.5x55 (the 260s ballistic twin) shoots best with 129-140gr, SSTs shoot GREAT in mine. I don't load 260 but I do know RL17 is a highly recommended powder by those shooting match with them.

Like Cottontop said,Just run the brass through your resizing die and check the length,trim if needed. I always debur my flash holes on all of my brass for a consistent powder ignition from the primers,as well as chamfer the inner/outer sides of my brass after trimming.

Your Savage should shoot almost any bullet weight from varmint bullets to the heavy match grade bullets. I personally like to use 140 gr Sierra Gamekings for hunting,and Berger 140 gr VLD's for long range target shooting or hunting also.

There are many different powders that will work great with the 6.5 mm family. H4350 is very common,as is H414,Hybrid 100V,Winchester 760,Reloader 15 or 17 and many more will work for the 260 Remington.
Look here for a bunch of load data-http://data.hodgdon.com/main_menu.asp
