For a com­mon de­nom­i­na­tor, I com­pared car­tridges loaded from the fac­tory. The .260 Rem­ing­ton has the same prob­lem the .264 Win. Mag. does: It has a 9-inch twist, and this lim­its what you can shoot from it. Un­der the right con­di­tions, you could cer­tainly get fine ac­cu­racy from the .264 or .260 with a more ag­gres­sive bul­let than a 140-grain flat base. But you can’t count on that un­der the ex­tremes of at­mo­spheric con­di­tions. With cold, dense air, you prob­a­bly wouldn’t be get­ting the best groups pos­si­ble. The 9-inch twist also lim­its bul­let weight. I could just as eas­ily have com­pared things with the 147 ELDM from the Creed­moor, which the .264 won’t sta­bi­lize at all.
