CS Bullets?

They don't have them advertised yet but I have a feeling they will soon with the way they shoot and all the interest there is out there. Maybe Cliff can send some targets to CS. It would probably cost too much to send the rock he shoots at 1450 yards........Rich

I was thinking the same thing. I can't figure it out either.

Re: Favorite 6.5 Cartridge

The CE 140's are a little longer than the Matrix 160 (1.51 vs 1.49) and less SC/density. CE recommends a 7 twist for them. Outlaw will be trying them in a 8.4 at higher elevations and I will be trying them in an 8.
