Sierra 6.5 (264 140 gr HPBT Matchking

Anyone ever use these? Any big difference between them and the 142 gr models. Local place has some and I need bullets!!! I could order the 142's but want to get some loads together for the weekend.

I have used the 140gr Sierra BTHP Match bullets for years and they are an excellent bullet. You may find the 142gr's to have a better BC, but for general shooting the 140gr's are great. If a box of each were sitting side by side I would not feel bad about either choice.

My 6.5x284 shoots the 142gr SMK better than the 140gr bullets. They do have a different ogive design.

Re: Sierra 6.5 (264 140 gr HPBT Matchking

the 140 is about a 10ogive where the 142 is probably about 15

this means??

the 142 is MUCH sleaker = better BC -- I will have a fairly inclusive bullet line up pic of a LOT of 6.5 bullets for comparison soon -- keep checking the link in my sig line for a 6.5 page [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

still a couple weeks out, but the pic should help your bullet decisions [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Sounds Great JB

I'll keep my eye open. The reason for the 140's is for just paper punching at shorter ranges. I guess I should just get off my butt and order some 142. Then again, those Bergers from goodgrouper looks promising.

brunos and midway have good prices on the 142's

Brunos is usually lowest on everything [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
