1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    As I'm sure you know, you're after a hard-to-find caliber. A great one, in my opinion, but one that hasn't set the popularity world on fire.

    If you haven't already, try trolling the websites GunsAmerica.com and GunBroker.com. I wasn't looking for a CDL but did find a like-new stainless steel BDL/DM in .260 Rem with the engraved receiver from 1997-2001 production on GunBroker.com last summer and bought it for $550. I put it in a new Remington laminated stock and instantly created an LSS/DM in .260, a rare bird indeed.

    I review the Remington ads on those sites for interesting Model 700s and Model Sixes every week.

    I think Ruger chambers more models in .260 now than Remington does. Remington has treated this caliber as a red-headed stepchild ever since they introduced it. If more models were available, more people would buy them. This is an excellent whitetail caliber. But I am biased; I have a 700 LSS Mountain Rifle in 260. A 129gr. Interlock at about 2900fps is more than a deer can stand.

    Good luck with your search. Wish I could help.

    The 260 Remington could possibly take the place of the 243 Winchester as the perfect round. The BC of the 6.5mm is truly a thing of beauty.

    I am a fan of Winchester model 70 actions. Of course they are not offered in the .260 caliber. I bought a .308 and had it rebarrelled to .260 Remington to get mine. I figured upgrading the quality of the barrel was a worthwhile expense and the prefered caliber upgrade was a fringe benefit. Good Luck

    Here's your CDL SF in .260.

    http://www.gunsamerica.com/989718874/Guns/Rifles/Remington-Rifles-Modern/Model-700/Sporting/Remington_700_CDL_Limited_Edition.htm

    I tried placing the URL in the field above but it doesn't work there - too long for the field allowance, I guess. If this one doesn't work when you copy and paste it, go to GunsAmerica.com, select Remington Model 700, sort by newest first and go to page two - it's about the sixth gun down.

    The long range rifle boys have taken this caliber to heart also...some of the groups a well built rifle in this caliber are capable of is phenomenal...plus I think its the best all around caliber for women and kids by a long shot..much better on the big stuff than any 6mm

    Might want to read a few reviews of that seller's store before leaping. I've been to that store. It's not far from the San Diego Shotgun Sports range. I called ahead to see if they had a Kimber pistol I was looking for. They assured me they did so I drove 45 minutes down to their store. After waiting about 15mins to finally get a chance to talk to someone, they said they didn't have any. I told them I called and drove down after confirming stock and they said they had never stocked that gun. What a bunch of useless individuals in that place. Never again. The reviews at the following link kind of make me think it wasn't an isolated incident. There are good gun stores and then there is So.Cal Guns...

    That's not an uncommon version of the old bait-and-switch tactic. I once called a well-known gun shop about 40 miles from my home to see if they had a certain model of Smith & Wesson revolver in stock. I was told they did and drove to the shop only to be told, "Good luck finding one of them - we haven't seen one in months!" Of course, no one there could remember talking to me but they just happened to have several other "almost the same thing" models in stock...

    Ed,

    Exactly! You must have been there... :)

    No one could remember answering the phone and answering that question. They tried to tell me I called somewhere else but I had the number dialed in my cell and showed them. They didn't have much to say after that. Talk about a bad taste... Never again.

    Obviously, I still harbor ill feelings toward that shop, even though it is now run by the original owner's wife and son. A lot of my friends patronize it but I only do when absolutely necessary and that hasn't happened very often. It's only been about 30 years, so the experience is still fresh in my mind.
