I didn't know Tikka made a .260.  How is the trigger?   Was it used or did you find it new?  Scope looks like a Leupy?

I knew they made the 6.5X55..... just haven't seen a .260.

My buddy picked up a Tikka in 30-06 and it's No joy to shoot... kicks like 3 mules!

Corbon ammo has worked great for my .308 no reason to think any different for .260.
Should be fun. I thought my .308 had next to no recoil but, this .260 is next to zero to the point... I hope I don't run out of ammo this Saturday.Wink

1k is a heck of a test/gamble.  I have experienced  certain ammo working well in my rifle and not work worth a toot in a different rifle by the same manufacturer.  Had the same experience with shotgun slugs.

I had the ammo custom made to my rifle. Just like I did with my .308 and that shot .142. My .260 shot .168 average with four 3-shot groups at 100yds corbon shooting.
