I have used this bullet in a 6.5x47 lapua a twin to the creed. Had no problems with the bullet accuracy was not as good as other bullets but was not bad at all .60 moa out to 500 my self imposed limit for this round. I have since gone to the 124 hammer hunter bullet and have regained some accuracy shoot what the gun likes

Been using that combo in 6.5 Creedmoor since around 2013 with no issues at all. I use it exclusively on Deer and Antelope and save the Elk for a bigger caliber though. Everything I've shot with it has gone down easily enough. I handload for it, but I tried a box of the Barnes Vortex, and it was very good shooting under MOA if you want to try factory.

The 127 LRX would not stabilize in a 1 in 9 it is actually longer than a 140 VLD which will stabilize in my 1 in 9 260 Rem at sea level.

Good luck and shoot straight y'all

Never ran the 127LRX but did run the 145LRX from a 7RUM- with FAST velocties they performed great.

I would check with Hammer bullets on the 124HH or 130SH-

Running them in my 26 Nosler, handloads, extremely accurate, killed a couple of bucks with them, both dropped quickly, one bullet recovered, I haven't weighed it yet, but looked like it should be near 100% of weight, I bought 3 more boxes.

Using the 127 LRX and RE17 in my 26" bbl Creedmoor I was getting 2,920 ft/sec with a SD of 6. This load shot about 2.4" at 400yds. Bullet was loaded .085" off the rifling.
The 124 Hammer Hunters and Varget grouped under 2" at 400 yds. but the accuracy node was at 2,860 IIRC.

Out of curiosity, what is your Reloader 17 amount. I've got a 22" barrel that is pretty anemic, but I hit a great accuracy node and didn't go farther.
