Re: 6.5 140 SST or A-Max
I'm a backpack hunter, and as such i've been using the single shot pistols for some years now. The gun is a 16" XP in 6.5-284 Win. with 3-12X Burris Ballistic Plex reticle/target turret. I've gotten pretty good results to 700 yds. with the 129 SST, but i can add some energy with the 140 @ 6- + 700 yds. I'll be testing the rig from field positions on steel in the next few days to see what my true practical range is in the field on a deer vital area size target.My velocity estimates may be a little on the high side, but i'm figuring somewhere between 2700-2800 m.v.
