I finally gave in and purchased a used custom 6.5 creedmoor this weekend.
Now I am looking for components. The original owner primarily shot factory 140 grain Amax's through it achieving .5 MOA which I confirmed yesterday
. I would like to load these as well but as you all probably already know there are none available anywhere that I can find.
What is the best substitute in your opinion?
I am considering the Hornady 140 HPBT because they are cheap. Does anybody have any experience with these?
My next thoughts were around the 142 grain Berger Hybrids because they have the highest BC I have seen.
However the cheapest i have seen these in a 500 round pack is around the $204 mark versus the Hornady HPBT at $130.
I know that every gun likes different bullets and everyone has a different opinion on what is the best but I'd like to here your thoughts.
I will primarily be shooting steel but would like to be able to use the same bullet for hunting if I wanted, hence the desire for the Amax and I already know the gun likes them.
Thanks in advance for your help.
