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

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.

I ran across this ad today for Norma .260 brass from Midway.
