    Ive never ran factory ammo threw my 260. With a caliber like the 260 you might want to look at reloading.

  6. Get some regular ammo IMO.

    Remington markets that for kids and new shooters........

    It really depends on what im using if for and your rate of twist. For deer hunting id probably look at the 120gr barnes ttsx (I cant deer hunt in indiana with a 260). For f-class and tactical competitions and anything smaller than deer I always use the 140 gr amax. Honestly the 140gr amax would be fine on deer aswell.
