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.


New for 2010 – .338 Norma Magnum, 300 Grain Sierra MatchKing Bullet – Velocity 2725 fps

The .338 Norma Magnum provides essentially the same ballistics as the .338 Lapua, but in a shorter, more efficient case. The .338 Norma Magnum design avoids seating the projectile down into the powder space. This aids accuracy and efficiency. The .338 Norma has received interest from the US Military as well as extreme long range competitors. Rifles chambered for the .338 Lapua can be easily converted to .338 Norma Magnum simply by changing barrels, as the overall length and a head diameter is the same. Rifles are available from Accuracy International, GA Precision, McMillan Rifle Company and others. Long range shooters who apply their skill at ranges of 1500 yards are finding that this cartridge is one of the very best ways to hit those distant targets.
