Do you know of any .264 bullets bigger than 140g?

I have been searching the net looking for custom bullet makers that build a .264 bullet bigger than 140g. I'm just looking havent seen anything yet let me know if you guys see anything. I guess we are looking for long range stuff with a BC higher than that of the VLD.

    There is the 142 Sierra Match King. Clinch River a custom bullet maker makes a 147 gr. Sierra use to make a 155 gr 6.5 bullet, but the did not perform as well as the 142's and I'm not sure they make them anymore. There are a few other custom bullet makers out there that make some in the mid 140's range, but can't remember the names.

    Bob cuartericco (spelling is probably off) makes 6.5mm VLD style bullets up to 165gr I believe. Don't know much else about these however. I do know our Mr. Backus used some of his 175gr 7mm's.

    I recall that Lapua made a 150 gr +, but it did not have a huge BC.

    Bob can be difficult to get in contact with. No one answers the phone before 3:00pm pacific time. His shop is in his basement, and his wife normally answers the phone.
