I hate to buzz kill but the matchburners are lead-core. I use these in 7mm

Re: 6.5 Creedmoor and Barnes

I've had good luck with accuracy and velocity using Barnes 120 TSX and 123 Scenar. The Barnes 120 load is 40.1 gr. Varget. The Scenar 123 load is 39.7 gr. Varget. Both loads are loaded with Federal Match Primers and Hornady brass. The rifle is a Savage Model 16 Weather Warrior
