Re: 6.506 vs 280 AI using 140 gr bullets
You know, just to further mess with your head; why not a 270 AI? It splits the difference on what is bothering you.
It will push a 130gr over 3300 fps, a 140 over 3200fps, the 150s over 3150. I have only started to use the matrix 165s and that looks comfortable at 2950 fps. It also has a HUGE bc.
So there you go, split the difference and have the best of both worlds.
Ps if you do this get a 1:9 barrel.
If you are a 270 AI hater in the crowd, dont bother me. I really like mine and it shoots great.
