Thank you Sgt45 and Larkin. I really appreciate your input.
I believe I would not have any recoil issue I couldn’t tolerate if I went with the 308 in the Tac A1with the 24 inch barrel. That rifle has a lot more weight to soak it up compared to the TSR-1. I would have already bought the TSR 1 in 260 if it came with 24 inch barrel. I was under the impression the 260/6.5 velocity loss with the four less inches would be quite a bit more than you described, so we are talking about just under 100 feet per second total loss. Its a long wait for a suppressor, and I’m guessing the 260 in the TSR 1 Mcree chassis would be just as tame without a muzzle brake as the 24 inch 308 Tac A1 with one, and anyone sitting next to me shooting would appreciate me not having the brake. I had one other shooter recommend me going with the 308 24 inch Tac A1, suggesting the newer generation T3X action is better than the older T3. And he also told me to go online and see how much easier it is to buy 308 than 260 Remington. I did some shopping and he was right about the 308 being a lot more plentiful. Our two largest gun dealers in Nashville did not have a single box of 260 Remington today. The ammo availability may end up ruling the day.
