    So am I better off using Hornady SSTs or GMX bullets over the Match rounds?
    When I die, don't let my girlfriend sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them.

    Target shooting. I use Match bullets in my .308 and 6.5x55 SE loads, but if SSTs would give me better ballistics, I'd switch.

    Not to take away from the Berger and Sierra news, but along the "new" bullet conversation...I met with the guys from Nosler at Shot Show and found out something new to me anyways.. This year they are making a new Accubond long range bullet for 6.5mm in the 142g weight category. The incredible thing about it is that they list the BC at .719!! I hope its not number fudging, but still looking forward to trying this in my Creedmoor and .260.

    Ditto for my Swedish Mauser.

    According to Sierra's website, the new TMK bullets are not recommended for hunting "anything larger than varmints". Too bad.
    Don't worry, be happy. (an M14 can do that!)
