The 109g SP from GS Custom is held to the tightest tolerances of any bullet in the world – diameter is controlled to within 0.0002 of an inch. With a BC as good as the 130g and 140g bullets and a muzzle velocity 300 fps faster, our 109 SP 260 Remington ammunition has even less drop and wind drift than our 130g Norma Diamondline. Truly the king of long range 260 Remington Ammunition!

Technical Data

Bullet: GS Custom 109g SP
Bullet weight: 109g
Bullet Diameter: 0.264″ or 6.5mm
Muzzle Velocity: 3200 FPS from 24″ barrel
BC: 0.571
Construction: Monlithic Copper Solid
Shape: VLD, drive band
C.O.L: 2.800"
Primer: CCI BR2 Benchrest
Propellant:
Case: Remington

Possibly the perfect all around rifle cartridge and more than capable of ¼ MOA accuracy out of a quality rifle, the 260 Rem recoil remains low enough that the majority of shooters will not develop a flinch. Based on the 308 Win case necked down to 6.5mm the 260 Rem offers more than enough energy to take big game and flat trajectory to 1200 yards. There are few jobs in the shooting world this cartridge cannot do. If I could only have one rifle it would be a 260 Rem.

Wow, wonder if a person could buy a lathe and turn some bullets them selves?
What's a click?

The bullets are cheap enough I think I would just buy them.

This posting prompted me to look into GS Bullets. I notice that several of the 6.5mm/.264 SP (264109SP182, 264113SP181)
bullets say that they are not suitable for the 6.5x55 Swede. I can't imagine why? Am I missing something here?

I would think as long you have a barrel that will stabilize the bullet and a chamber suitable for the longer bullets it would work.

Also check out their hunting bullets: http://www.gsgroup.co.za/hvtech.html

They do have some load data for the Swede http://www.gsgroup.co.za/sploadsmall.html

That's what I'd think too. My 1:8 that is chambered with PT&G's 6.5x55 Match Swede which is supposed to have optimal throating for  long secant ogive bullets would do it. I just thought it odd that they specifically called out that cartridge as not suitable. I see there are a couple of minor bore/groove dimentional differances, maybe that's it. Particularly odd when you consider that the 6.5x55 Swede original loading was a 160gr very long round nose bullet and that the cartridge has traditionally been paired up with fast twist barrels to stabilize this bullet.
