Default Any reasons NOT to build a 260 Rem for my daughter?

I built a rifle in 7mm-08 for my oldest daughter, and I bought a 270 CDL for my son. My middle child is due her gun, now. She has a Rem SPS in 243. I would use the action off of that gun build one like I did for my older daughter. I am thinking about doing a 260 Remington. She is full grown, at 18 years old. She used the 243 with reduced loads as a child. I think of her as recoil sensitive, otherwise I would just build another 7mm-08.
I can load the 260 down and use 120 grain bullets and still be ahead of the 243.

I don't mean to imply that I would have her stick with the reduced loads. I'll try to work her out of them. Planning on ending up at 140 grain bullets.

Go with the .260. Girls are tougher than you think. Both my daughters were shooting 12ga. In high-school. My oldest loves to shoot my 375 H&H and my youngest hunts with a .270 and 30 06.

She put down a 20 gauge in favor of a .410.
Broke her first clay bird with that .410, but the point is she didn't like the recoil of a 20 gauge.
I don't want to build something she won't shoot.
The reason for asking about the 260 is I'm wondering if there is a more effective cartridge with the same availability with similar properties. Like the title says, why should I not build one.

A 243 or 6mm creedmoor with 100-110 gr bullets is very deadly on deer and pigs

A 6.5 cm or the 260 with 120 gr bullets won't kick.

I have never been a fan if muzzle brakes but got one on my latest APR 300 WM (i know that's a different beast) and i enjoy shooting it. Probably makes that gun kick like a 260. I know shooting with ear pro all the time, even while hunting is a pain, but i bet a 260 with a brake would be like shooting a 223

I agree. 260 is a good round and if it was me Iíd build it and add the brake. My 9 yr old son and 13 yr old daughter shot my 308 with a break like itís nothing. And loved my 6.5cm with a break. That 6.5 kicked as much or less than my 243.

You can also get a thread protector and be able to remove the brake and put the protector on later on of she gets comfortable shooting it and doesn't need it anymore

My grandson has shot 3 deer with his 260 at 9-10 and 11 years old. Put a can on it and its like a .22. He shot a deer last year at 289 yards. He has also shot a coupla dozen hogs out to 300 yards with it. I bought me one last year we like em so much

Wife loves her 260.
Has a custom barrel so little heavier than normal but I'd call it about even with my AR15 in 6.5 grendel on recoil.
Puts factory fusion 120 grains in almost the same hole at 100 yards so thats what she shoots.
My daughter doesn't care much for recoil and she shot it fine also.

I wouldn’t hesitate to build her a 260 if it’s what both of you want. I built a 7’08 for my son, loaded it with 120 gr Nosler BTs with a reduced charge of H4895. He’s now up to full load 140 gr Sierras. Can’t go wrong with either choice in my opinion.

If she is recoil sensitive it might be worth having a competent gun smith custom fit her stock. People often overlook gun fit and it makes a big difference

Another option if factory Ammo isnít needed is 6.5x47 Lapua. Little less powder than the 260 but almost the same performance.

My wife and both girls shoot a 260 mountain rifle with no issues but I wanted my wife to have her own.

Go with the 260 and just put a muzzle brake on it! Kick like a 22. After a shoulder surgery I donít shoot anything larger than 223 without a brake. I enjoy shooting and just got used to the noise.

To be honest I would go 6.5creedmoor.
I don’t think 260 will ever go mainstream again with the numbers of them out, leaving fewer ammo choices. You can always make it. But that leaves the need to reload. They gun will be around for forever. But her ability to get reloaded Ammo may not be a option easily to obtain.

I agree with this.


also, get a can for it. kids are most sensitive to sound. a muzzlebrake won't help on that end.

Iím far from a CM fan, I went 260AI in my target gun to avoid it.

But for a hunting gun running factory ammo the 6.5 Creedmore is really hard to beat due to quality factory ammo availability.

My thoughts as well. My first rifle was a .260 mountain rifle. Beautiful rifle but it kicks more than I would like because of the mountain's light weight. Not many options in factory ammo and we don't hand load.
I have a 6.5 CM and a 7mm-08. There is a wide variety of very good factory ammo for both.

My youngest son started with a .260 Rem at about 10 years old with regular loads. He never complained about recoil and he was a small kid until his later teenage years. The .260 is a deer killing machine in the right hands. No better choice IMO for a youngster.

.260s nominal recoil.

.260 is an excellent round. I have an A bolt in that caliber. I like 120 grain Sierras over H414. But on the other hand, it won't kill anything that my .243 won't kill with 100 grain Hornady's...For a recoil sensitive person, I'd stick with the .243. Shot placement is much more important than a few extra foot pounds of horsepower....

Build it.
Between me and my 2 boys we have 2 Rem 260's, 2 6.5 Creedmoor, 5 Win 243's. We do a lot of long range shooting out to about 600 yards filling MLD tags.

All three cal will kill cleanly at long range but the Rem 260 is the best, with its larger case capacity mine is shooting 206 fps faster than the creedmoor

If she is recoil sensitive, you might consider a heavier bbl, reduced loads or a can.
My ears have rang 24/7 for the last 15 years so if it was my kid I'd say away from breaks

I was going to get a #4 contour or possibly a #5. @ 24". Should have some heft. Also bedding the thing in a Boyd's laminated stock, so more weight.
I expect it will be used for 90%+ stand hunting or bench/prone shooting.

I want to get her something stouter. A .260 can shoot up to 150gr (I believe) bullets. A 243 cannot.

Based on your repeated recoil comments, I'd strongly consider the 65 Creed. Most of the effective range of a 260 with less recoil. Has excellent factory options and is very easy to load for.

Why I didn't do this right away I don't know, but I just looked at the Chuck Hawks rifle recoil table, and there is actually hardly any difference between the 260 Rem and a 7mm-08 with the same bullet weights as far as recoil energy and velocity go.

I don't see either one of my girls shooting over 300. Most shots will be around a hundred or 150.
I have brass, bullets, powder and dies for the 7mm-08 right now.

New here but owned a couple rifles in 260. I think it is a great caliber but like others have said, I would go with a 6.5 creedmoor for factory loaded options. I've shot several thousand rounds of 6x47 lapua, 260, 6.5 creedmoor and 6mm creedmoor. Having a factory option is awesome

I'd opt for the 7mm-08, which you could load down with 120s as well, or a 6.5 Creedmoor as mentioned.
Only reason not to build the 260 would be ammo availability.

I never let factory ammo availability or cost dictate my choice in calibers. I reload everything so factory ammo availability isnít even on my radar.

260 v 7-08 isnt much different in recoil. Youll be better off letting her use .243 in this case.

Put me in the 6.5 Creedmoor camp as well. Not because it’s any better than a .260, but because of ammo availability, especially in the future. One day she might not have you around to hand load for her, and she might not want to mess with it, then the rifle ends up not getting used any more.

Buddy of mine just went through that, his dad had a 6mm Remington built when they were kids, it’s basically extinct. He ran through the last of the factory ammo, and does hand load, but hadn’t bought dies for it yet.

I can vouch for a 6.5 with a brake kicking very similarly to a .223 bolt gun. Both rifles were Weatherby Vanguards, shot back to back off a bench. Use the brake at the range with ear pro, take it off when you hunt. You’ll never develop a flinch.

Buddy of mine just went through that, his dad had a 6mm Remington built when they were kids, itís basically extinct. He ran through the last of the factory ammo, and does hand load, but hadnít bought dies for it yet.

I can vouch for a 6.5 with a brake kicking very similarly to a .223 bolt gun. Both rifles were Weatherby Vanguards, shot back to back off a bench. Use the brake at the range with ear pro, take it off when you hunt. Youíll never develop a flinch.


Thereís no excuse for that. Thereís a multitude of companies that will load ammo for you.
