    Hornady 6.5*55 140 Gr?

    Hello Folks,

    Anyone here had any experience with the above ammo? I will be using it through my blaser R93. I can't seem to find any reviews on the net. Any info or advice would be appreciated.

    A mate of mine uses them in his Tikka to good effect, But i tried them in my .260 and found the recoil not to my likeing.

    I used it in my sauer 202 for a season, found it a very good round, moved on to Norma 120 grain ballistic tip, by far the best factory ammo i have used in the 6.5.

    With the hornady there was very little meat damage, with the norma there was a bit more meat damage but put the animals down a lot better, all my stalking is for sika.

    I have used the Hornady Spire point 140 grains in my HB Tikka 6.5X55 for targets and crow shooting.
    They produce a group better than half-an-inch at 100yds.
    My load is 46gr of Viht.N160 ignited by a Federal 210GM primer. In my rifle there is no sign of excess pressure but as with all loads of someone else it is prudent to start lower and work up.
