Re: First season with the 6.5 Sherman

I have a great arrangement with a hunting partner. Being the better shot by a healthy margin, I do the shootin'. He does the cuttin'. I know, it's generous of me.

I remodeled a wonderful old cabin several years ago. A group of guys had bought it and used as a hunting cabin. The walls were plastered with decades of hunting liscences, photos, and memoribilia.

Re: First season with the 6.5 Sherman

Thanks Rich for sharing your elk experience last fall. About the time I read that I was starting to feel a little like Superman with this new gun. It made me pay closer attention to things.
At our hunting elevations the Bergers don't drop to the 1800fps threshold till 1200yds. I have a box of A-max that I'll see if they will shoot as good as the Bergers, just in case I need a backup bullet.
I don't know how much difference it will make, but measuring the bearing length on both bullets was a bit surprising. The A-max bullet only varied at the most .002 and that was only a few in a good sized sample, while the Bergers had a .010 range. It looked like I would have to have to sort through quite a few to get enough the same to fill a box. Cliff

I've noticed that the Bergers have more variation as well. They still shoot well though! Be careful with the A-Max at closer ranges. They might make the Bergers look like armor piercing!
