The Power of Performance

New for 2010 – .260 Remington 139gr Lapua Scenar

In 2010 Press Releases on July 12, 2010 at 8:12 pm

The .260 Remington was originally designed as a hunting cartridge, however tactical competition shooters recognized its potential as a superior long range caliber and came to Black Hills for a specially loaded tactical version. We responded in 2009 with a special production load designed with assistance of GA Precision for their customers. The popularity of that load was so great that George Gardner at GA Precision convinced us to offer it as a catalog item for 2010. This load is notably superior to the .308 in terms of trajectory and wind performance, and even surpasses the .308 in terms of energy when ranges exceed 500 yards. Accuracy has proven to be exceptional. Velocity from a 24” barrel is 2750 fps. The .260 tactical loading will be part of the Black Hills Gold Line of ammunition. Rifles are available from GA Precision and others, including Les Baer Custom who is now producing a long range tactical rifle in this caliber.
