Re: Sierra 6.5 (264 140 gr HPBT Matchking

The Berger 140's have the highest bc, and I have found them to match the ballistic charts the closest. They also have a J4 jacket which blows up vermin much better at ranges past 1000 yards.

However, according to Glen Zeddicker, as the throat starts to become rough, a gun that started out liking the aggressive shape of the Bergers might become more forgiving of the Sierra design shape. I haven't had that happen yet, but if it does happen, the 142 MK will get bought.

To me the 140's look like round nose "old style" as opposed to VLD styling... But Both do shoot great! God bless Sierra.

You probably already found out their is quite a bit of difference in the bullets by now. Mainly teir down range characteristics. Im my 6.5 Gibbs they shoot almost identical until we are out past 250yds. They load the same(aprox.)but the 142 LD's are much flatter the further we go past 400yd. Especially. I hope that might help.

Yeah there is a Pro Hunter 140 then their is the Game King I use for Closer Whitetails because of expansion. The Pro Hunters(more Rounded then the Game Kings) are real thumpers out to the 350-450 range I'll bet. Thank you, T
