Default .260 Remington

Does anyone reload for the .260 ?I have a Savage model 11 that I plan to hunt with in Maine (deer& bear), and would like to shoot the 140 grain projectiles.
I picked up some 140 gr. Nosler Partitions, and would like to hear from others what they are loading their .260 with.
Has anyone used the Nosler demilitized brass (the bullets pulled and the primer is still in the brass) ? Do they need to be resized (case mouths enlarged to receive the new bullets), and do I need to punch out the primers or just remove decapping pin ?
Thanks, Bill

Pick a powder that gives you 90% fill ratio for a book max load, start 5% below max work from there, 4350, 4831 something about that burn rate, shoot it and see how it does. however you do not need a partition for deer and black bear in a 260, the cheaper cup/core bullets will be fine. look into the 140 ballistic tip, they shoot well and they perform fine at the 260's velocities.
