Default 260 Ackley Improved load data

Anyone have load info for 139-142 gr. bullets?
I found a load on Reloaders Nest. 42.3 grs. of H4350 behind a 139 gr. Scenar, a velocity of 2860 fps was quoted, seems to me that is high for this load.
Can I just start a gr. or so above max loads for the 260 Rem. load data?
How will a 120ish gr. bullet work with an 8.5 twist barrel?

That is what I used to fire form with. Towards the end of my first 50 FF loads, groups seemed to start shrinking, with 5 of 9 holes within a dime.

Thanks in advance for the input

Only accurate rifles are interesting!!!
