    I have a 6.5wby that is really having problems shooting the 140 Bergers consistently. Just for kicks I loaded some 139 Scenars using the same 68grs of Vit 560 and it shoots 1/4" groups every single time. Any experience with using Scenars for hunting? Specifically for whitetails.

    Thanks in advance.

    So a search on "secnar" and/or "goodgrouper".

    You'll find, if the search is successful that tests show they do not expand worth a diddly, pencil holing consistency.

    For paper they are great. For hunting they may not be so satisfying.
