Why not try a JLK in any of three flavors of 6.5 mm. Swampy makes a 130, 135, and 140 grain. I think they are more consistent and 135 gr. shoot great to 2950 fps or better with RL-26. You should have better SD as it may prove to be a great load at typical 95 to 100% fill.What whitetail type hunting bullets are you guys using with the X Bolt 1-7 twist? I'm having a hard time getting the Berger 135 Classic Hunters to shoot well in mine? Any particular loads with that bullet? What bullets are shooting good in yours?
I think 6.5 Creedmoor Lapua brass are only $113 per hundred here in the States. That is not a bad price for a case that can be reloaded more than a dozen times, with ease.Great to be an American! As a Canadian...that's 88.00 a box here! We pay 4.25 per case for Lapua brass
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
