260 rem & 130gr sierra gk hpbt reviews?

So im thinking about trying this bullet since almost all my rifles seem to shoot sierra bullets better than most. I cannot find any feedback for this combo in the 260 anywhere and was hoping someone here might have some. Any experience would be appreciated.

Its worth the $$ of a box of slugs to try them. I too like Sierra's and have found them to be accurate and and Im partial to BT bullets anyway. Go for it!

Sierra Game Kings have an excellent reputation as deer killers. I almost loaded the 130SGK (soft point not the hollow point) in my 260. then I built a 300rum and it became my primary hunting rifle.

For shooting 3-400 yards, you should see good results.
