I bought a ruger alweather last feb in 260 and used it for the first time this year.The buck I shot with it was facing right at mefrom 80yds. I shot him right at the base of the white spot on his neck. He dropped on the spot. I was using hornady's 129 gr sp.
The 260 is very pleasant to shoot I would recoment it to anyone. I am working up a coyote load right now using hornady's 95 gr V MAX.

I've got two, a rebored .243 for open country, and a rechambered Arisaka carbine for the black timber. The cartridge is as good as any of the non magnum .26s.

The 260 is a wonderful little cartridge. the 120's and 140's for this caliber are both great for deer and it just a pleasant little gun to shoot!

I picked up a rem model 7 in a .260 at the start of last season fro my 2 young sons to share, then 7 and 11. Both have taken their first bucks and does last season. . .this season was much tougher and only the younger shot a spike. I use a .270 and I will sometimes use the .260 because I like the way it shoots so well.

The only down side is that I have found in using a 120gr with it that if you get into bone the round will change course a bit more than my .270 shooting 130Gr.

I think it is a great Deer round.
