    Struggling to Load for a Striker 516 in 260 REM!

    like load data for the 260 Remington in a 516 Striker, love using Load Data for most stuff - all the 260 REM info is for long bbls. Figure I need a faster powder and would like to stay on the light side. Using Nosler 100 Gr spitzers. Appreciate know what anybody has had success shooting in (even something close in size to 260) Thanks

    I have used imr 4064 ever since i got a rem model 7 with the 20 inch barrel. Try starting with about 36 grains with the 120 grain sierra and top out around 38 or 39 grains. With a 100 grain bullet try starting around 38 grains and you will top out between 40 and 41 grains. These are not real hot loads but they are accurate in my model 7
    Ackley was right all along

    4064 is a definate move in the right direction. Good call Georgiatom.

    If your Striker has a 15 inch or longer barrel, you can use most anything. I have a 7x444 Encore that shoots RL19 well. But, I usually try to stay with the faster powder in the short barrel. Varget, RL 15, 4895 should all work.

    I use IMR 4064 in .204 Ruger,.222 Remington TC 15" .223, 6.5 Creedmoor, .260 Remington, 7mm-08 TC 15", 7-30 Waters TC 15", .308 Winchester, and so on. I use 39.0 grains under a 123 SST with a 22" barrel .260 Savage. 4064 is my starting powder with most all short action rounds, great stuff.
