Re: 130 grain 6.5mm Cutting Edge Bullet
I have only tried these on targets and did not have them for last hunting season. I don't think they were out last hunting season.
I listed the coal for the STW but forgot for the win mag. I will get my data sheet and see. Both actions are Sako. I have shot CE bullets in several calibers with various seating depths. They seem to be like the Barnes ttsx and are the least critical to seating depth of most bullets I have shot. They like to be off the lands like the ttsx. I have shot them from .005" off contact to seating the seal tight band well down in the case .1+" off the contact point with the barrel. I have seen them shoot well at a wide range of seating depths however with some rifles I have dialed them in for extreme accuracy. I think what these guys say on the web page is accurate from all the ones I have tested. Start about .025" off the seal tight band and go from there. These are extremely long bullets in all calibers so for them to feed through most magazines you have to seat the seal tight band well into the case which I have. I still got good accuracy. I always have repeaters in my magazine so I test them against my long range bullets which are not repeaters. I want to know how far I can accurately shoot the repeaters for quick shots with no time to set up a long range round. In the rifles I have tried that the deep seated bullets were easily accurate with the long seated bullets to give hits to several hundred yards.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
