From what?
Onsite Exchange?  Gmail?  

Usually my best estimate, start to finish with clients is about 1hr per mailbox, depending on size.  With 260, you should have some that barely have any data and some that are fairly large.

Actual time is not that long if you don't need to import PSTs manually.

Depends on tons of things: size of the mailboxes, type of migration, bandwidth, migration method and what not. Here is a very detailed article:
