260 Remington, 6.5mm-08 Large rifle Primer
50 count Factory new unprimed Starline 260 Remington brass rifle cases ready for relaoding.
Introduced in 1997, the .260 Remington is another wildcat turned commercial cartridge. Utilizing a 6.5mm (.264″) diameter bullet, the .260 has a lot less recoil than its .308 parent case, but shoots much flatter. This has made it very popular in many shooting sports, and makes it an excellent choice for hunting in much of the U.S.
Brass case mouths MAY not be perfectly round from the manufacturing process, this can be corrected by running brass through the size die (always recommended) prior to loading. Residue from the annealing process may leave a stain on the case neck that can be removed by tumbling. Annealing involves rapid heating then cooling to impart the shell cases with the proper hardness to securely hold bullets in place and provides flexibility to expand and contract through multiple firings handloaders expect.
