    Saw BDU has the 6.5mm Sierra gc's for $16.99....but qty says 50 per box...I thought they came 100/box.

    Anyone know if they are selling them in 50 count boxes too?

    I heard some early reports that they weren't expanding very well? Not sure of the yardage though?

    I shot a cow elk at about 100 yards with a Sierra Gamechanger just a few days ago. It was the .308 dia. 165 gr. bullet with 56 grs. of H4350 loaded as a 30-06. The bullet went right through the heart leaving a fairly small hole on each side. I did not recover the bullet. I have seen other brands of bullets do much more damage to an animals heart. See photos.

    The early reports that I've heard confirm your experience. Tough bullet that doesn't expand easily. You would certainly expect more at 100 yards.
