Thread: 6.5x55 Bullet tips SOUTH WALES

    6.5x55 Bullet tips SOUTH WALES

    Hoping some of you reloaders may have bullet tips 100 to 130 gr that I could purchase a sample of. Just to load test and see what the barrel likes before I buy a complete box.
    Nosler hunting and Hornady SST I had in mind but not a problem if something different.
    Pm me if you think you can help.
    Thanks for reading.

    Come on guys he's only looking for the tips of bullets. Some of you must have some plastic tips that have fallen off ballistic tip bullets hanging around.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Yet another thread where the thread is ruined by people having a go because the wrong name is used, it's obvious what he is after. Getting very boring now IMO

    My daughter rekons it won't be long before you can put the crayons down and move on to pencils Saddler.
    Although we suspect some level of help from a grown up it does clearly state the tip of that round is a bullet. Yawn

    Tikka .223 I use Hornady soft point 140grn which are more than adequate with minimal meat damage, I personally don't think ballistic tipped bullets are necessary. You will find many people recommend 140grn bullets for 6.5x55, they certainly seem to go very well in my Sako which has the same barrel as a Tikka.
