  • My 7mm-08 gets a gift courtesy of the 6.5 Creedmoor.

    my last remaining compadre who shoots a 7mm-08 gave in and traded his off on a 6.5 Creedmoor. Since the dealer doesn't do any trades or barters of ammo he offered me 2 boxes plus 4 loose for $20. I see they are 120 gr. ballistic tips and seeing how I have only ever used 140's ( Federal Fusion and before that partitions) I'm a little unsure about deer hunting with these, especially under 50 yds. I'm down to 8 of the fusions so I will either have to buy more or shoot these. My internet research shows people all over the place on the 120's capability, think maybe they've thickened the jacket in the last few years.
    Any experience, thoughts,comments, or advice accepted with a thank you for taking the time to type. IMG_1487.JPG

    I've had mixed results with B-tips. But that was with the 1990's vintage design. I still have over 400 rounds of 180 grain .30-06 in clips for the Garand. Close up, the bullet rapidly expands and has a tendency to shed the jacket. One shoulder shot pig kept running, never to be found.

      I couldn't have 400 anything loaded and ready, I'd have to find something to shoot at. These would be for deer only, I wouldn't think of trying to whack a hog with these.
