Re: Lapua Scenar 6.5cal. 139gr.
Tiff's dead on, worked up a load with them last year, preliminary group was 1 5/8's" at 500 yards, opening morning I shot a yearling doe at 781 yards, impact velocity was approx. 2000 fps, POI was just in front of the hipbone on a hard quartering away shot. upon impact the bullet broke in 2 pieces, the hollowpoint broke off, about 3/8's inch of the nose, jacket and core separated and moved side by side through the deer showing no expansion. the only good thing was as the pieces clipped the underside of the spine they sent bone fragments through the lungs. try the 140 bergers, shoot almost as well and perform much better.
