I have a Tikka rifle with a 6.5mm barrel ready for a 6.5 CM or 260 Rem build, if interested.

Chad had a Tikka 260 in SS put together for me. 20 inch Brux barrel. OOOO Baby that thing will shoot. I've been stacking up the pigs and coyotes with it, and had a good deer season.

I went with Derrick at Horizon Firearms, he has went above and beyond what I have expected for customer service.
I should have my rifle back in 2-3 weeks and he has spent hours on the phone with me getting everything set up and answering countless questions.

Another thing with the 260 Rem- If you plan to shoot the high BC bullets, like a Berger VLD, you will want to chamber the 260 Rem with a zero throat reamer, or a reamer with a very sort throat. The main issue with the 260 Rem and these high BC bullets is you have to seat them out long to shoot well, and many box magazine's are too short for this. After many rounds when the throat wears, you begin chasing the lands, and seat the bullet out further. The Berger Hybrid's will help with this, but will still need a short throat at or near mag length. Just something to think about. When building a rifle, I plan first for what bullet I plan to shoot, then make the caliber and chamber how I want it for that bullet.

^^With what Chad stated^^

If you're dead set on a .260 Rem, there's nothing wrong with that. Keep in mind the 6.5 Creedmoor will make the exact same external ballistics, but do it with a shorter overall length, and with .6-1.0gr. less of the H-4530 each chambering uses. And since it starts out shorter than the .260 it will allow you to chase lands for a longer round count on the barrel than the .260

Just FYI

The 260 Rem is a great round, but it does have it's draw backs with mag length. I'm a huge 260 Rem fan since I shot it in competitions for years, but the 6.5 CM solves a few of the issues you have to work out with the 260 Rem, like seating depth and mag length issues. Now, I'm drinking the 6.5x47 Lapua kool-aid, and I don't think I will ever convert to anything else. It will out shoot both the 260 Rem and 6.5 CM.
