    IMG_2888.PNG IMG_2887.PNG Anyone have any info on these? Just seen them in a email from Midway. Looks to be a well constructed bullet.

    I watched the video on Sierras Facebook page. Looks like a tipped game king. I'll be ordering some in 7mm 165 grain

    I might have to get some of the 6.5mm 130s to try in my 6.5x55

    Don't know why the 6.5mm bullets cost more than the 7mms though

    I didnt pay attention to the prices. That is strange. I dont shoot anything less than 140s in my 6.5 so the 130 didn't really interest me. The 7mm has my attention. That's going to be a deer slayer at 3100+ fps. Even the 165 30 cal has a decent bc of .53. These should make for great hunting bullets for medium

    I’m sure they are great hunting bullets, like a ballistic tip or SST, but hardly a game changer...cool name, had me going.

    When they make a 240 grain .308 bullet at a B.C of .8 or so I'll buy a box .

    Didn't even see BC's listed. What was the BC for the 6.5mm? I think they would be a good do all bullet for my 700 classic 6.5x55

    Some of there BC's might be 'in testing'.

    Can't wait till they release some heavies.

    The 130 isn't released. The 165 7mm is .610

    I think the nosler long range accubond is still better by a long shot.

    Nobody has even tried the new Sierra bullets.
