I’ve got a good load with the 140 grain 6.5 Sierra TGK out of my 6.5 Creedmoor. I’ve heard that Sierra created a thick copper jacket with this bullet and it’s got a pocket behind polymer tip for expansion. I’ve also heard mixed reviews from field tests.

Anyone got experience with the Sierra TGK?

What type of velocity you getting?

I shot a black bear and large bodied buck last year from the 6.5 Creed with the 130 Grain TGK and performance was what I would consider perfect.
I have heard that on the 130s alot. Wondering if the 140s are any different in construction

130 gr gamechangers at 264 win mag velocities suck. They vaporize into dust and get p-poor penetration. Maybe at needmore velocities they might be ok. Accurate, yes. Other than that nope. I shot 3 out of my 264 into milkjugs. Gave the other 97 away, and would've thrown em' away had a friend of mine not wanted them for his grendel.

Used the 6mm Creedmoor 90gr factory load by HSM for the past two deer seasons. Killed around 15 with it from 40 yards to 460 yards. All pass throughs except the 40 yard shot which was facing me. The recovered bullet retained 65% of its weight. I love em-
