    I just recieved 100 6.5mm 141gr bullets VLD style from Len and I have to say they are some long sleek looking pills.
    I was wondering if any of you guys had shot any critters with them and how they worked as compaired to say a Match King or Berger VLD.
    My launch speed should be in the 2900fps range.

    I haven't used them on deer yet but shooting Bob's 120gr vld's at 3150fps it blew apart Prarie dogs. Nothing like a 22-250 vmax but did split them in half. I wouldn't hesitate to use them.

    does he have any place to look at what weights and things and ways to order them?
    I'm wondering what the BC is on these 141gr pills

    Only way is to get info from guys shooting the caliber or call him. 650-583-1550. He is in California.

    If i remember correctly the BC for the 141's is around .630

    The Cats should perform the same as Sierra bullets on game in that they are built on Sierra jackets.
