I usually hunt with handguns now and occasionally a rifle but this year I didn't shoot anything with a rifle. I put together a .260 Encore using an MGM barrel.
Scary accurate. Shoots .25" groups and that isn't exaggerating. The bullet of choice is the 140grain Nosler Partition.
Here are the results.

doe at 149 yards

buck at 216 yards

I am going to to try to visit around to old haunts more this year. Its been a crazy year. A lot of this year was blessed with 80 hour work weeks. I did manage to hunt some and looking forward to turkey season. I didn't even make one duck hunt this year.

That’s the exact combo I use in my 260, I love it. It’s been solid on deer, caribou so far.

That’s a sweet little setup, nice job!

Really nice deer and handgun. Really love the 260 as well, I'm surprised that you used the 140 gr PT but it obviously works great even at pistol speeds.

I have never seen a 140 .264 partition not expand. It leaves a nice long shank with a ball on the end. Never have to look far for a deer with it. Going to try some 125gr partitions shortly.

Ah, good to hear about the Partition expanding for you.

Congratulations. My Grandson Landon started using a 260 this year, not a pistol though. What powder do you use? Dan.

Congratulations on great hunts.. Brings back memories of my Encore with an MGM .260 rifle barrel.
It was a sweet package that never let me down. Wishing that I had not sold it now as it would have been perfect for hunting on Dan's farm in western New York.. Rol
