Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    Rich,
    After seeing that group I thought I would see what it would do in my rifle.
    6.5 sherman range report-gun-pics.jpg
    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

    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.
