    Thanks Fubz. Gibo has sorted me out.
    Just get back to me when you get time on that other ammo issue for the RCO. Whether I can wait till the mini match before it is sent up or I have to get it there earlier.

    Be keen to see the results Dave, they might have you changing direction. Bloody accurate by all accounts and have minimal bearing surface so FPS could be up on the 129.

    Worth a crack then.

    I am happy with the 129 but if I can get a similar performance with the berger, the higher BC will be an advantage if I ever need it.

    I tried them in my 6.5x47L but had to jam them to get good accuracy which I didn't want to run for a hunting load, @R93 think I have a part box somewhere, if they work for you let me know & I'll dig them out & send them over
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    Awesome thanks mate. I wouldn't ever use a load I had to jam on a hunting rifle.

    Pretty much why I haven't tried them to date. Heard a lot of people had to get them squished right in there.

    Sounds good. I don't have mag length issues because I can just change mags which determine whether she is a long or short action. So I can get them close to the lands if needed.

    Try some W760 (H414) Gibo for some better speed and probably grouping

    The 6.5 hornady 130 eld m are a good alternative to the Berger 130's in my creedmoor. Both shoots very well.

    Yeah mate I got your point. Sometimes ya get a barrel that will shoot anything you feed it.

    My point was I should be able to get as close as possible without touching.

    Im going to try the 140 elite hunters, according to Litz very seating depth friendly. . Brilliant in the 338. The 105 vlds are very accurate in the 243ai but took some work to get there.
    I came into this world with nothing and I still have most of it left.

    A mate is using them in his 260 with good results

    Thanks to @Gibo I shot some of the bergers he sent me today.

    Loaded to max mag length which is still just tickling the lands in my barrel.

    Wasn't an ideal day to shoot groups wind wise but the results with a lighter load than I intend to use, were way better than I expected.
    Just need to settle on a load and see how they tip animals over.

    Oh and I need to find a good supply of them
