And it will probably suprise some of yall. All I have got to try so far has been 125 Partitions and 140 SST's. I couldnt get the Partitions to shoot any better than an inch so I scrapped them, anyone need some? lol For the 140 SST's I tried different weights of Varget first, and got a load that was shooting .5 consistently and had a few .6 groups as well. This evening i loaded up 50 gr of H-1000(compressed load) at .10 off the lands with the 140 SST and had consistent .4 groups. I do believe I will stick with this one! I usually trade rifles away if they dont shoot .5 or better so looks like the Remmy found a new home with me. I do have more load testing to do with it as Im going to try 120 gr BT's and 130 AB's but I am pleased so far. I lent the rifle to a friend for the juvenile hunt and he got a little doe with it so it should be lucky lol

If those are 100 yd groups, you sure have a keeper. Consistent .4" is really good. Makes the confidence level rise.

I've heard reports that H-1000 was extremely corrosive and causes excessive throat wear over other powders... offset by the fact that it is fairly temp insensitive.

What kind of velocities are you getting? I'd think it'd be a tad slow for the 260.

oh and I checked the IMR/Hodgon website, H-1000 is actually listed as the fastest one for the 260 with 140's.

My next gun may be a 260, something about it intrigues me. Let us know how it does on game.

Kimberman, It does well on game. One of the neighbors killed one with it during juvy with the 140 SST and it dropped dead on the spot.

Now... you get that rifle shooting too good and it'll be your fault when you miss a shot. Always leave yourself an out. Bad ammo, rifle shoots wild, scope knocked off, bad mounts, deer moved, etc.....
