Weighed my 260 on a digital scale and with the scope it weighs exactly 7 pounds 6 oz.

I do not have my dies yet for the 260 Rem, it should be in soon with
some bullets I also ordered. I put a few rounds that were sent with the
rifle down range before I went to work this morning. It was 129gr Hornady Spire
Point, H4350, WLR primers and Rem brass. The rifle shows promise. I
will make some real changes when I begin to do my handloading. I will
change primers and of course try other powders and bullets.

Here
is how it shoots with the above load.

Looks good... I have a stock Ruger Compact in 7mm08 that shoots great even out of the 16.5" barrel

Well, I got the VX-II 2-7x33mm and put it on my 260 Rem and my rifle has now a total wieght of 7.486 pounds and this will be great for spot an stalk. The VX-II with my good eyes are more than enough for what I will use this rifle for and after an all day hunt in the mountains I will appreciate the 7.486 pounds of light rifle. Here is how it looks with the scope:
