Brands of Factory Ammo for the 6.5-284

Curious to know if anyone has tried the various brands of factory ammo (140gr) for the 6.5-284? I would like to have a box or two as a backup to reloads on trips!

Black Hills
HSM
Gunwerks
Best of the West
Nosler Custom
Cor-Bon

A person would go broke buying a box of these at 65-85$ a box!

    I asked the same question in my build thread, but putting this out there separately!

    I tried the HSM and I got a consistent 1moa at 100 yards in my Savage LR 111.
    I hav enot tried the others and I have not shot that gun in a while... but it is my next project....

    I've used BH and Cor-Bon. My rifle has a tight chamber, I get sticky bolt lift with the BH and actually pierced a couple primers with the Cor-Bon. Looks like I'm going to have to neck turn and reload for this rifle. Didn't shoot the Cor-Bon enough to get a read on accuracy. The BH shot well.
