Great looking rig PGS!! I'm looking forward to my new 260 coming. Since Nathan lives down here in the South I've had plenty of opportunity to gawk through the Hensoldt optics.

They are incredible optics and you will certainly enjoy it!! Good luck with it!!

Last two groups at 100M....gusty winds 15 to 20 mph and spitting rain. I'm happy with this start!!

I have become a huge fan of the 260 since getting mine and having spent the time to work with it. 260 is a great round.

Those templar actions are smooth as glass. I about feel over the first time that I cycled mine. Nice stick. You will enjoy it.

Nathan,

That would be fine....the photo is poor quality as the light was'nt very good. I'll promise you better ones in the next few days.

That scope is really a work of art...unbelievable workmanship went into building it. I cant wait to get it out in the field and put it to work!!

The mildot reticle is perfect for my application.

More to come....Pat

The tube is a 26" Schneider, 1-8" #7,.905" @ the muzzle. It's my first Schneider and one of the smoothest barrels I've ran my borescope in....very nice!

Beautiful rifle, and it obviously doesn't come up short in the performance part either.

What trigger did you go with?

Nice Pat
What speeds you getting with that load? Mine shot the 142 SMKs better.

    2 more groups shot while testing velocity and extreme spread. I can "fish" that reticle all over that bullseye at 100 meters...its not oversized at all IMO..

    That rifle needs a nice sling! If you're selling that S&B for another Hensoldt, let me know

    Took it out to 1150 meters this morning from this spot....put 5 shots on the face of a white rock that went into a 10" circle with the 139gr scenar load(2850fps, 11.6 mils). JBM chart was spot on. Conditions were near perfect, 50F, 80% humidity, and dead calm. I checked it at various other distances,450M, 600M,- 800M. Everything looked good.

    I know I've said this before but man, that scope is awesome....I like the turrets better than the S&B. It's easier for my 52 year old eyes to read the numbers. The clicks are very positive and consistant....good stuff!!
