    Still trying to find a good mix with the H4350 and 130 gr. Nosler Accubond. Tried a few others last week and the H4831sc showed some promise. The 140 VLD's did well with the H4350 but I've had a harder time finding the right H4350 load with the 120's and 130's. Any one out there working with these in 260?

    I like H4350 and Varget.
    H4350 for 243 and Varget for 308.
    I use H4831sc for 7mm Rem Mag.
    I do not have a 260, but I think I would start with H4350.

    My 308 and 243 both love varget. I haven't found a load the 260 likes with it yet. Might try some 120 gr and see how it does.

    When I get home I’ll get you my load data for 260 using H4350. You my find the Tikka likes the 140-143grain bullets better than the lighter 120 grain.

    I have loads for 140 gr Berger Hybrid and Hornady 143 gr ELD-X. Both shoot 1/2-3/4 MOA out of my sons Savage.

    THESE LOADS SHOOT SAFELY IN MY SONS SAVAGE 260. I DON'T QUALIFY THEM TO SHOOT SAFELY IN YOUR RIFLE. ALWAYS WORK UP YOUR LOAD TO ANYTHING PUBLISHED ESPECIALLY PUBLISHED ON SHOOTING FORUMS

    I'm loading Remington brass with CCI BR2 primers. (Lapua brass my generate higher pressure due to internal case volume)
    140gr Berger Hybrid, 43.8gr of H4350 at 2,887fps
    143gr Hornadt ELD-X, 43.6gr of H4350 at 2,874fps

    You'll need to determine CBTO based on your chamber.
