Hope they are right this time. They sure blew it on the Lapua 6.5mm 139 grain Scenar.

I am itching to try some of those in my 6mm284.

Looks about right based on were the 95gr VLD's fall.

I use the 88gr FB High BC varmint (.391) by berger for yotes.... Deadly!

I use the 95's for deer and antelope since thats what I intended to shoot when I had the rifle built.
