My order finally came in from Euro Optic. I got 1 of 3 in the whole country factory Left Hand Tikka T3 Hunter rifle in 260. That's what I was told anyway and they were very proud telling me. They are shipping it today and they said it should be here on Friday. I hope it has highly figured wood.

Now I just have to figure out what load I want to shoot and what scope it's going to wear.

I need some load info for 125 gr Partition, 129 gr Hornady IB, and 130 gr Swift Scirroco. Brass is prepped and ready for powder. I have all sorts of powders. Let me know what works best for you.

I'm going to the range this Saturday to see what shoots the best.

I don't load any of the bullets you listed but I do load the Hornady 129gr SST in my .260.
I like the performance of the SST's in my other rifles but my .260 [Rem Mdl 7] was finicky with this bullet. I finally found a load that shot really well with it though after a lot of trial and error. "This" rifle likes 41.5 grains of IMR 4350. It's not a hot load and is almost 3 grains shy of Max per the info I have found but the deer sure haven't noticed. Per my chrony it is traveling around 2765 fps. Like I said it isn't "hot" but it is super accurate in this particular rifle and every deer I have shot never made it out of sight and left massive blood trails and a lot of internal damage. Wish I could help more, but that is the only load that I use for this particular rifle. Good luck!
