I don't use it much anymore due to the newer, less temp. sensitive powders being out and for about the same price. That's likely why you don't see 760 being used more. H- 380 is another good example of a decent ball powder, but isn't talked about or used much anymore.
760 is very useable for your two calibers. With things being the way they are now, use it up.
I've always used magnum primers when using ball powders in my hunting ammo. Speer reloading manuals have always recommended magnum primers with the rifle ball powders. If you don't shoot the ammo in very cold temps, you can use regular primers.
Some will argue that cases with case capacity less than 60 grains or so, you don't need a magnum primer. For target loads, I wouldn't worry about it.
It definitely gives excellent velocity and accuracy.
Just dont have or want to buy magnum primers. Will probably not get win 760 again when/if things get normal, but if it works great in the 260 I may keep using it
