Cdog,

If you don't get what you're looking for here, go over to ar15.com.

Re: 65gr gameking

I just bought two boxes of them. I want to use them on North-eastern coyotes and ferel dogs.

I tryed AR-15, and there is nothing there - did you find out anything. I'm hoping that the jackets will not be TOO thick, and they will open on large canines (40 to 70 pounds).

Re: 65gr gameking

Hi catshooter, I just received back an email from sierra. I wrote them saying my I5 suite version must be too old as it did not contain the 65gr gameking. They promptly wrote back saying to use the data for the 63gr semi-point.There is a good bit of diffrence in the data for a bolt action or ar15 so make sure your looking at the rite one. I have only used these on 3/8 steel plate at 330 yards, but you can easily tell the diffrence on how the bullet is made by the large welts in the BACK side od the plate. Varmint bullets only leave a slight cup and a grey smear, you can hear the diffrence too!! If you dont have a sierra manual write back and I will give it to you, thanks for responding to my querry, CDOG.

Re: 65gr gameking

I do have the Sierra Infinity Suite, I was just wondering if the jackets will allow them to expand on 40 to 70 pound canines.

Thanks.
