Re: 6.5 sherman range report

Rich,
After seeing that group I thought I would see what it would do in my rifle.

That went rather well except for the fourth shot
So I wondered if this load would work good for other bullets.
140 Berger

The 130 Accubomb has given me fits so I thought it wouldn't hurt to try it also. Best ever with it!

Lastly I have been playing with a 142 Matrix. May have found a new favorite

It seems to be a very good load all around.
(gotta work on the trigger puller some)

Nice to hear from you Cliff and good shooting as well! It looks like the Matrix is a shooter alright. I can't wait to try some 160's in my new 6.5 SS.......Rich

Re: 6.5 sherman range report

Hers is a pic of the bullets for a comparison.
140 Berger Hybrid (The gold standard)
142 Matrix-the most accurate bullet I have shot to date.
160 Matrix- bullet for the 2013 hunting season.
I don't think I have got the best from this
bullet yet. Have all summer to fine tune things.
155 Cauterucio- bullet for the 2012 season. Never got a
chance to take anything long range, but
did finish the season with no misses

Last group shot with the 160 at 1450yds. Nasty variable wind, 2 sighters and 4 on target.
