I noticed those yesterday and wondered what was the difference.

I will be interested to know.

The Match BT THICK is not quite as aggressive in the BC department, and has a slightly thicker jacket.

The VLD THICK is the same way, slightly thicker jacket to withstand higher velocities.

The bottom two are the same... look at the part number. Don't know where the "thick" came from on the bottom bullet description, but there's no way the two can be different if the part number is indeed the same... how would we/they tell them appart?

The thick jacketed VLD should have a -THICK at the end of the part number. The non-VLD bullets are supposed to be less finicky to load and may work better in factory/non-match chambers. Berger and many others say the VLD is a hunting bullet.

The 6.5mm 140 VLD Thick has this part number: 264140V-THICK.

the regular 6.5mm 140 VLD has the same part number except no word thick at the end.
