I can't seem to find any brass besides Nosler and Remington for the .260. Is this accurate? Do you guys mess with making your own or just buy the Remington or Nosler? I was thinking about Re-sizing lapua .308 brass but didn't know weather or not all that is necessary. Thanks for any insight. Jeff

Thats about it.I found it easier to take Lapua or Norma 243 and and open it up to 260

I had a brain fart for a moment. that is exactly what I had planned in my mind. I don't know why I said .308. so the Remington brass is junk then? Jeff

The Remington brass is not junk. Many 260 Rem shooters use it. But I found you had to sort it and I had to use 3 different neck bushings or turn the necks.
Necking up .243 Lapua or Norma has its pitfalls too. When I did that, for a factory chamber with lots of taper (and excess clearance at neck-shoulder junction), I got wicked doughnuts after 2nd/third firing. The doughnuts were so bad I couldn't seat a bullet short enough to chamber. Solution was inside neck reaming and outside neck turning. Other folks, with a tighter custom-reamed chamber, haven't had such bad issues with necked-up .243 brass, but I found it frustrating enough that I sold my .260 bbl, fitted a 6BR tube and never looked back.

I guess I will just sort the .260 Remington brass. Jeff

If you plan on pounding on the .260 and reloading it a bunch of times, just bite the bullet and get Lapua .308.

i'd buy some nosler brass before remington. jst depends on what your wanting to do with it. for a hunting gun the remmy brass will work out jst fine. if your wanting less the 1 M.O.A. i'd go with any of the alternatives.
