    As a long time champion of the .264/6.5 mm calibers in general ( I esp love the .264 Win Mag), I love the fact that support for this caliber is steadily growing. And it’s not just for competition geeks, as the .270 is to the 30-06, the .260 is just a better, more flexible hunting cartridge than its parent. Funny that it was kind of an outcast for so long, given it mirrors the performance of the 6.5 -55, with the advantage of readily available brass. The disadvantage, of course, is you really need to reload because of the lack of cheap surplus plinking ammo.

    Sweet. I’ve been interested in a rifle chambered in .260 Rem ever since I got into F-class, but there haven’t been that many that come chambered from the factory like that. It’s good to see another one available, even if it’s not something I personally would be into (I’d rather get a bolt-action for F-class-style shooting).

    It’s a shame that Armalite 7.62 AR aren’t compatible with SR-25 magazine which is becoming the standard for AR 7.62 rifles.

    I love my 260, although it was built on a bolt action rifle and not a semi-auto. The 260 is a fantastic cartridge and it amazes me that it isn’t more popular.

    COURIOUS! DOES ARMALITE MAKE A UPPER IN 7.62 X 51 (308) THAT WILL FIT THE AR-10(T) IN 260 REMINGTON. THIS UPPER WILL HAVE TO HAVE NATIONAL MATCH BARREL, NATIONAL MATCH SIGHTS, PITCANNY UPPER RAIL?
