Re: RE-15 & 260 Rem.

I'd like to see some loads too.
My first .260 will be here shortly, and I've got plenty of 15 on the shelf.

Re: RE-15 & 260 Rem.

I use 40.0 Gns RL15 as per the Nosler #6 book, gives exactly the quoted velocity out of a 22" 1:9 twist LW barrel pushing 120 Gn NBT. Fed GM210M primer and Nosler brass... delivers 2895 fps MV +/- 5fps. Drops Fallow, Roe, Foxes on the spot.

Best

I use 40.0 gr also with 123 Lapuas and BRII primers and get 2940 fps. My barrel is a little long in the tooth, so start a little lower.
