berger elite hunter vld 6.5 140gr

I just wanted to inform all who may read this I just bought a box of these because my usual smk's were gone...i will never look at another smk again these are the single most accurate bullet I have ever seen. I fired two 4 shoot groups at 715yds I not only hit the target bit there were 4 bullets inside of an inch and a half...1.5 inches I thought to myself surly this was just a fluke so I did it again,and I really did do it again 1.5 inches absolutely incredible 6.5 Creedmoor 27" 1:8 shilen barrel on mauser action going 2700fps Way impressed

    wow That's cool. I feel the same way about the 215 Target Hybrids in my 300 win. Best groups ever at 1000 and they are the norm, not just a once in a while deal.

    This is good to hear as we are putting a 6.5 together now.

    OK guys - your saying 140 gr 6.5 elite "hunting bullet" correct.
    I was not aware they were yet available, in fact I just went to Bergers website and I don't see them at all.

    Been testing the 140 gr hybrid target bullet but my initial test yesterday didn't go as I had hoped - not convinced this little target bullet is going to have the fragmentation needed to do what we had hoped on game.

    So - if this is the hunting version can to steer me to where I can get some, and to your knowledge does berger have a 140 hybrid "hunting bullet" out. These target hybrid shoot extremely well but if a hunting version is available we'll have a couple boxes of hybrid target available for trade material.

    Thanks guys.

    ok I don't know the differance between elite hunter and target I have never shot the target rounds but I may be interested. One thing you may try I set my bullet .05 off the rifling I've heard they like to kiss the rifling just make sure to back the load off I shoot 41.0 re17 behind them running 2700 fps...im not the greatest shot but these bullets make me shoot better I'd buy your targets if you don't want to mess with them p.s.the hunters are in the orange box
