    Hornady has just released a new bullet. The a-tip match. Looks like an aluminum tipped eld. The bc on these bullets are nothing short of impressive! Looking forward to shooting them!

    How long until the first guy asks if it would be good for hunting...

    Wow! I can dig that but I wonder will my 6mm and 6.5mm 1-8 twist barrels be tight enough to spin the 110's and 153's, respectively?

    Considering this a long range HUNTING forum I would hope someone would at least be thinking it...

    I have to say they look impressive! Just got to hold them. I was most impressed with how much bearing surface they still have while being so sleek.
    I was told they will perform like a FMJ on game but I'm sure someone will find out...

    Boooooo. Not the news I wanted to hear. I was hoping they would act like an amax.

    They'll be loaded for game next fall......and everyone will have great results. That 6.5CM is great again.

    Looks to be about $80 to $90 a box depending on caliber. Not too bad.
