Sorry, no etymologies found.
I don't have any experience with the cartrige but the .260 Rem is .308 case necked down to a 6. 5mm bullet as opposed to the .243 which is a 6mm.
The .222 Rem is not an obsolete cartridge, though it's past its peak of popularity.
Today, the .222 Rem is still highly appreciated by knowledgeable varminters for its efficiency and accuracy.
The .222 Rem is alive and well in my household, and will remain so as long as the brass is available.
Objectively, the .222 Rem is a delightfully accurate cartridge that dominated Benchrest competition until it was displaced by the 6x47mm and 6mm PPC cartridges.
Personally I prefer the Rigby, but the Rem is just fine.
Not having been around for quite some time, I don't know if the Ruger Ranch Rifle in Rem 6. 8mm SPC has been discussed to any degree, so I'll throw this out and be gone.
The .35 Rem is great for whitetails in the brush but it drops like a lead balloon after 150 yards and it is so slow, you would have to lead an antelope about 93 feet or so if it is on the run (or is it 98?) ... you will need to check this carefully because if you miscalculate, you will miss.
Rem is shown to be wired up to some huge machine while her memories are tearing through her mind.
But Rem is a female character, and the only “full names” I can think of are male.
