Although I'm not shooting a savage 111 LRH, I am shooting a 6.5-284. Have you tried the 6.5 hybrids? They are not as sensitive to seating depth.

I didn't see a 6.5 hybrid hunting bullet listed. Because I did look. Is it new? For me it has to be a hunting bullet because all my guns are hunting guns first and target second. That's why my next choice was a Nosler BT. It they make a hybrid hunting Berger I will definitely try them.

You could make a holder and single feed. An empty Berger bullet container works well to carry some loaded ammo. I found a loaded ammo holder that packs 20 rounds and protects the bullet alignment. However, my rifles shot well at .100 and .125 off the lands so I didn't have much issue with concentricity. I am not sure what my new barrel is going to like yet but am hopeful I get good results with a good seating depth.

They are not currently making a 6.5 Hunting Hybrid. However, in my opinion, you can use them on game!

I just hate to risk the kill of a lifetime on whether or not a target bullet will do the job. Ill try some Nosler BT. In my past experience they have been easy to tune and do work on game. Not sure about this speed though.

Hornady? Sierra? Matrix?
Might as well give them a try.

I have been testing the 127 lrx i took them to africa and took 3 baboons and 3 rock hyrax with them they were devistating. was going to try them on gemsbok or springbok but my 300 wm was shooting so good i just used it.

i am using 4831sc and pushing them 3034 which is right at the limit.
