    Hornady tells me that they won't be out for another month or so.

    Can't wait to try them in my 6.5x47 Lapua!

    I saw this the other day as well. I can't believe what a big jump they got in BC in going from 120 grains to 123 grains.

    You're celebrating BC of .510?
    Have you considered the good old 123Lapua Scenar at .548?
    Been around quite while..

    I'm celebrating .51 BC with a polymer tip in a bullet that MAY increase terminal performance on varmint-sized critters at longer ranges.

    The fact that they cost close to half of the price of lapua and are easier to find doesn't hurt either.

    hoping this will fit the magazine and throat in my 6.5 Grendel (JP Enterprises). it would be the go to bullet for prairie dogs.
