    I have a new rifle and instead of buying a bunch of bullets by the hundred I am looking to trade 140gr Berger VLDs for 140gr A-max. Or I will buy a them from you. I am looking for 10-12 of each.

    Take a look at BulletSamples.com. They offer multi brand caliber specific bullets in packs of 12.

    Have you tried the 142 SMKs I sent?

    How'd they shoot?

    With only a dozen of the 140 Bergers on hand, I figured it wasn't worth a full workup. And I'm not shooting the SMKs near max anyways in this particular 6.5x284. So, I just loaded the 140 Bergers exactly as I do the 142 SMKs and my son shot all 12 into one ragged bughole at 100yds.

    That's plenty good for what I need.

    Thanks!
    Richard

    They shot very well. I will stick with the Bergers only for the higher BC. I could not tell enough of a difference to say one is better than the other.

    Thanks
