i know a couple guys shooting the 140s and like them they just never shot up to my expectations...the 108ELDs i shot 30 of them and that was enough.
the only bullets ive shot the will shoot better than bergers are the 105g infinitys but at $253 bucks a box ill stick to the bergers.
you want easy to load and stupid consistent get yourself a 100 108g bergers and load them .025 off and run a charge test and ill bet around 2950 and 3050 youll buy more...smallest groups ive ever shot at distance were 108g bergers.
108 Bergers are super accurate. Great bullet

Figure I'd pass on some info. Just talked to Steve at X-Caliber since they're running 30% sitewide today.

If you call and get your order in, you can lock in BF/CM prices and then call them back with your order number and have them tag it for 6GT chambering.

They are still waiting on reamers and will have to confirm specs and make test barrels before production. Figure 10-16 weeks based on what I gathered.

Snagged a 26" 1:7.7 m40 profile to jump into the 6mm works.

Has anybody bothered to work up some RL16 loads with either the 105s or 112/115s? I know StaBall has everybody hot and bothered since we can meter it but I'm real fond the temp-resistance in RL16 for shooting throughout the year here in OK

The new batch of 112's I can't get to shoot. Shot the 112 all last year and loved them. New batch are no good. Back to Berger's. Wanting on the 109's
How new a batch are you talking? I just got 1000 rounds in from MidwayUSA last week. Loaded up some rounds with 33.2-34.0gr Varget and 38.2-39.0gr of Staball 6.5. Hoping it's an easy load development and I didn't waste my time/money.

Barnes sold out of the 112 last year. Production started again in August. I got 15,000 in last month for friends and me. Had them shooting ok at 100 yards. Tried about 200 rounds with. Varget, h4350, and staball 6.5. H4350 was the best. Shot a local match and had funny groups going at distance. Came home an shot these groups at 200 yards with the match loads. That's a 1 inch dot.

I need more.... waiting on my AI AT Pre-Fit from GAP in the 🌈🐅. Is it basically gospel that the 105 Berger is the most reliable bullet out there? Seems like when every one else's are inconsistent that one just works, even with a bit lower bc.

A-Tips are as well.
