The 95gr 224 might get a try in the 22 creed. Others look really nice and the one's that are already out have lived up to bc claims. Granted these are pointed hp so not likely a good hunting bullet except for maybe varmints and pigs.

I can't remember a better time for bullet choices. Hornady, Sierra, and Berger all keep one-upping each other. And we benefit from it!

Not much info on the 95 or the new 30 cal heavies but the others have been out a while with the exception of the 150 6.5mm. A guy on fb was posting pics of recommendations on twist from Sierra that looked like a pdf of the bullet chart. Midway and a few other retailers list them as new release but sierra has nothing on their site.

Alright! Alright! Alright! I just got the bolt bushed in the ole Tikka 6.5x47 so I won't have anymore primer issues and thought I might give the 142 Matchkings a try but I may look at the 150's .

150's would be for something with more ppwder capacity than a 6.5X47 IMO. You can't drive them fast enough. I won't be trying them in a 6.5 Creedmoor.

Would you need a faster twist than a 1:8?

Not a new match king youíre referring to, but Iíll back your comment.
This is a Sierra 135 gr HP boat tail, 30 cal.. deer was shot at 125 yards quartering away.. ran 10 yards.. hit somthing vital but didnít expand nor exit. Not my deer but a guy on the lease.. great accuracy, but not a good hunting round.

I try it too get political on here but...

Another go e example of the free market providing consumers better, cheaper products. Not because some one mandated it or subsidized it. It's because natural market forces work themselves out.

Idiots use the term "trickle down" economics like they know what it really means. It ain't scrounge mcduck deciding hand out coal. It's supply side economics. A greedy corporation wants to, out of great, create something better and never existed before simply to take market share. Not nefarious like keep poor people poor.

No baby "asked" Sierra to.improve their already popular and profitable product. The supplier merely did it to be competitive.

Wonder if these will be like the VLD-H or Just target bullets? If Berger is who they are after the BC better be on and consistent
and offer a all in one hunting/target bullet.
