    6.5 140 CoreLokt (plus free AMAX)

    I have around 80-100 ( I will count tomorrow) 140gr Core Lokts for 6.5 and I will throw in around 5 free 140 amax's.

    I'm after 100gn Partitions or similar construction, soft point (prefer bonded if possible) 100gr's only

    @gimp any ideas for something similar?

    Do Barnes do a 100gr? It's really a bit light in 6.5

    I'm using these in my little 6.5 @ about 2700fps, not shot anything with them yet and they are bloody gold plated so load development is painful for your wallet
    Only bonded bullets I have found in 6.5 (partitions excepted) are all in the heavier weights

    I'm really enjoying the light (feels like a .223 recoil) at the range with these 100amax's even at 2750fps (Mind you i did group 1/2 moa at 3100 out of my 18.5"). I dont shoot past 300 so 140's are over kill. 99% is well under 100m for me.
    @mikee how do you find them opening up in softer tissue? Thats the fps Im looking at shooting them.

    Tim, I'll take the corelockts, as I can't find any in Dorkland.
    How much $ do you want?

    Only shot them on paper so far, groups around 1/2 MOA with some load development (Barnes 100gn TTSX with 100thou jump and 28gns N530). We won't talk about the 2 inch groups we started with

    My 6.5 IS a .223 case necked up so these are max loads for me.

    If i couldn't get the barnes to shoot well I was going to try them in my 6.5SAUM going a little faster than 2700

    Are there any that don't require fireforming? @Pointer put me on to the 6x45 which is just a simple sizing die conversion for brass which is right up my ally.... I might shoot this 223 a fair wack then look to convert in a year or two.
