I am coming to the end of my stock of Hornady 6.5 x 55 140gr SP.
I am getting feedback in Ireland that it is simply no longer available. Sometimes though it's hard to differentiate between not available for economic reasons and scarce as hens teeth. Does anybody out there have a handle on the true situation. The Hornady website does not mention it but does refer to 140 gr SST. Is this the same as Ballistic tip. I've been an SP user all my stalking life - basically RWS in my previous 243, and now Hornady SP in the 6.5 x 55. I am comfortable with the Hornady in my M03 and would like to stick with it . I admit that owing to my stalking partner not recovering animals when using ballistic tips I have a concern about using them myself . I dont shoot enough deer to be in a position to compare and contrast assorted ammo.
Any comments would be appreciated.
