BOTW 6.5mm 142gr. Berger vld?

I see on the long range store website they have a 142gr available, anyone have any information on this? Their website says nothing about it

    Most likely a misprint. Sierra makes a 142. Berger a 140.

    Berger's addin' new stuff all the time. But, I doubt a 142 is gonna be added to the menu.

    I have a hard time thinking BOTW is getting in bed with sierra. But who knows.

    From the folks at BOTW

    The 142gr is a bullet BOTW has produced. It is not a Berger bullet.
    The BC is just slightly higher than the 140 Berger. The advantage is the 2 extra grains out in the tip, this equates to a little better penetration before it starts to expand. They generally are a little more accurate in most rifles.

    Botw has also came out with a 175 7mm botw vld and a 197 308 botw vld, all the bullets in the line have the j4 jacket. I have been working with the 197 ALOT and really am loving it. I have worked up loads for the 300rum, 300 wby mag and the 300 win mag, with its bc of .620 its a smoker out of all 3 calibers. When I get my 264 win built I will be playing with the 142.

    Good post, I was watching an episode where I seen that bullet written on their turret and found the same info on their website as you did - nothing except that they sell it
