Ordered some 140 grain .264 polymer tip spitzer boat tail seconds from midway, they're way long, will be great long range bullets but..... need load data. Any help is much appreciated.

Hodgdon had lots of good .260 data. You'll probably end up using IMR-or H-4350.

Here is a kind of close load, for a 139 grain Lapua Scenar bullet. 43 grains of H4350 gives 2900 fps. COAL is 2.835".

It works very well in my Savage 12 LRP for whatever it's worth. Not exactly the same bullet, but close.

I used CCI BR2 primers.

try 35 grs imr 4064.

Been shooting 260 for 14 years, Kimber 84M. Try all weights of bullets. Varget is a stand by for me in this size case.

now with the 123 gr SST. Have it with me for boar hunting fri-sat. head shots only, very accurate.

I shot an email to Hornady Tech (:thumbs::thumbs:) for 270WIN load data for the 145gr ELD-X and they shot back three different powders, starting and max load.
I gave them a list of the powders I wanted to use and they came through.

Try it, you'll like it.:sofa:  They are great.

Thanks Bear, have you ever thought of going to Ackley Improved?? do you shoot any 140 or find your best with the 120's?

IMHO the AI is only of significant value in heavily tapered cases; like 300 H&H, 30-40, 30-30, 348. Even the 257 Roberts is very slightly improved with an AI..


I have shot 140 and 160; but stayed with the 129gr as I personally wanted one all round load, varmint to deer. I'm sure it would work on medium-small black bears also. But my black bear rifles are 8x57 and 9.3 (among others) ...so "I" have no real need.

The 123 grain was developed for long range shooting (BC=.510) on medium to small stuff, Antelope, deer. And it has worked perfectly; accurate and with lung shoots dead in tracks.

Just my thoughts OMD!
