    Midway has them as well, free shipping if you spend $50.

    Guess the big boys get them first. My local gun supply doesn't have them yet and we're only 20 miles away from the Berger plant.

    8 twist should work with the SAUM, I’m thinking

    Planning on an 8 twist working fine in my 6.5-06. Pressure testing tomorrow with the ones that arrived today. Throat is eroded but the length gets me back to the lands with these.

    I was using the 160 matrix and that thing was a tack driver and it had an 8 twist.

    My lowest elevation is 3600 ft and mostly I am at 8500 and above hunting. I'll be way slower but hoping it works out.

    I bought 2 boxes the second Swapdog mentioned they had them at midway. I think they’ll be good in an 8 twist 06 AI. Can’t wait!
