Description
 

The .260, often called 6.5-08 A-Square, made its start as a wildcat cartridge based off the .308 Winchester round; that’s where the name 6.5-08 comes into play. It wasn’t until Remington standardized the round in 1997 that it became known as the .260 REM. However, Remington wasn’t the only company to attempt standardization.

LTC Arthur Alphin with A-Square LLC also submitted papers to SAAMI to standardize, and even does so a few months before Remington. However, when the dust cleared and the final hammer was dropped, Remington was awarded the name.

In its inception, the .260 REM is simply a necked down version of the .308 WIN. What makes the .260 REM different is the fact that it could use bullets with excellent ballistic coefficients and sectional densities relative to their weights. In fact, this round can perfectly duplicate the trajectory of the .300 Winchester Magnum while producing a lesser recoil on the shooter. The benefit to this is less time between shots, seeing the shooter can more easily get back on target.

While the .260 REM had been around for a couple of decades, it gained notoriety when Sgt. Sherri Gallagher used the caliber to compete, and win, in the 2010 NRA High Power National Championship. It is destined to continue to be a favorite for many reloaders.


Each box contains 25 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer.

It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
