Re: Am I in trouble

I like your thinking 4x but nothing in this state is that easy. My $25 cell phone ticket cost me over $90. They always get ya with the "cost of the court" BS. Maybe by 2019 I can talk the family into another state. Socialism, I'm on my way...

8.5 is what I am running in the 6.5-06. Headed to the range now to do some short range work before tomorrow. What is your elevation? We are generally no lower than 3000 ft.

Barnes makes a great all copper 127gr LRX. I'll give you a few to try. I feel your pain,my 6.5x284 eats berger 140 gr hybrids.
Also 4X has a valid point.

Thanks digger. Ill order some. Kinda hoping this will get these company's to address the need. I built mine on a long action for the longer bullets so I'm not worried about the length.

Re: Am I in trouble

I use the Hornady 120 GMX in my 6.5 wsm at around 3400fps they shoot very well & are accurate out past 1000.

I'm not sure how the terminal performance will be way out there, but they are very good at "normal" ranges.

They are longer than the 140 Amax & appear to be very similar in shape.

I have used plenty of Cutting Edge .375, .416 & .510, they are great.

Haven't tried any on the smaller ones yet but would assume they would do the job very well.
