Norma 6.5mm 130 golden match for hunting

Curious if anyone has checked these for consistent expansion or any thoughts in general on using the Norma 130's out of a 6.5x284 for hunting.

Re: Norma 6.5mm 130 golden match for hunting

Hi

The norma 130 gr. bullet is one of the best designed bullets for 6.5 mm as it has real high BC ( G1 .575 )and G7 form factor of .905

I have shoot a graylag goose with it at rough 400 yards and it went straigh through and it had no meat damage. I think this bullet performs like Scenar og MK bullets in regards to hunting

Re: Norma 6.5mm 130 golden match for hunting

i noted the BC that litz has published in his book and couldnt believe it to be true shorter than a berger 130 vld but a better BC and at a much cheaper price so i ordered 500 for a soon to be 6.5x284 on a savage target action. plan on using them for deer and goats. Thanks for the input

Re: Norma 6.5mm 130 golden match for hunting

Hi!

The 130g Golden match from norma that you referr to is also called Diamond Line when coated with moly. It is a very common bullet for long range shooting here in Sweden. It is a very good bullet when hunting smaller animals since it doesn┤t ruin the meat. Just one hole in a one out, not much of expansion to talk about. I wouldn┤t recommend it for hunting deer or other animals of the same size.

Regards
