    TMK ?

    they worked for me, after trying the 75 Amax.

    can send you some 62grainers to test if you like

    The 69’s should be perfect in 1-9 @northdude

    What is the intended use with them?
    Paper only? Or some hunting?
    As I don’t use them for hunting, tend to pencil through.

    TMK is the tipped version of the Match King.

    Green tip. Both versions have the same shape. The MK is slightly more traditional shape compared to things like the Amax, ELDM and Bergers.

    @northdude - I've just had a really good couple of experiences with the Game changer - which is essentially a Tipped Game King, in my 6.5 - The TMK I'd say would be similar with the tip meaning it opens up better that the traditional match king that tend to pencil through. The 69 looks like it might be worthy of a bit of a load development mate... Will watch with interest..
    I'm drawn to the mountains and streams, its where life is clear, where the world makes most sense!

    @northdude, some questions...

    100yds / 100m ?
    are you shooting factory or reloads ?
    looks like quite a bit off a vertical to me, is the rifle in a plastic fantastic stock ?
    shooting off a bipod or a solid rest ?
    are you getting more vertical later in the string ? first 5 shots tight vertically ?
