Quote from: Danbonzo on January 02, 2017, 03:32:55 AMI'm confused. Does a factory ammo come topped with a 142smk? As far as experience with that pill, it's an excellent projectile. Excellent consistency and BC,and it works in mags. I've used it in matches and it's drop is equivalent to the Berger and Hornady pills in the 140 class.
Quote from: dadajack on January 04, 2017, 06:40:49 AMThe 142s are awesome. I need to order another batch myself. I agree it is somewhat strange Fed doesn't try to compete, but then again, the entire premise of the 6.5 Creedmoor was to provide a match quality cartridge that can be "reused" many times, according to the story of the Creed sticky. So, Fed may just see it as a non-starter to try and compete with hornady with Hornady's cartridge and a bunch of shooters (possibly the vast majority of which) who reload exclusively for it.
QuoteI honestly see the 6.5 Creedmoor eventually taking the title away from the .308 in popularity

Quote from: RioKid on January 04, 2017, 02:39:31 PMFuji, are you looking for more Hornady 140 ELD?? If so, I just ordered some yesterday from "Outdoorlimited.com". It was on sale in bulk cases ( 200 rounds ).Chris
Quote from: Danbonzo on January 04, 2017, 04:00:04 PMEveryone was saying the same thing a year and a half ago when I said Lapua would start making 6.5cm brass. ps. "Eventually" doesn't mean overnight ?
Quote from: Wilson1911 on January 04, 2017, 12:50:53 PMJack is always praising them, so I might try them on the new barrel if he has the new metaplat ones.
Quote from: Turbo on January 07, 2017, 07:17:48 PMI am in Dadajacks' camp, if you have never tried 142gr SMKs and like punching paper, then do yourself a favour a buy a box IMHO. Jump 20 thou or more, do not jam them at all. Yesterday in 35kph gust winds, I took out smallest group out of 40 guns with them on the 300metre (328yd) bench. Left the very popular 6mm and 7mm in the 142grs wake. Still working on trying to get Bergers consistently below 0.25 moa for consecutive 5 shot groups, but this is a longer term project and I hate burning barrels on test work.Creedmoor rules, Darryl
