Talk to 1967spud (aka Mark) - that's where I get mine when I need them. Regards JCSMy local supplier quotes a long delay for 140gn A-MAX bullets for my 6.5-284 reloads, so the question is!!!!!!!!!
What other 140gn bullets would you recommend for 6.5-284 reloads?
how would you zero your stalking rifle then ?Wouldn't using ballistic tips on a range be frowned upon? I thought FMJs were the only rounds allowed for target shooting. 'Zeroing & practice', I guess? never used a civvy range, so I don't know what the rules are
I'm rco'ing at a military range tomorrow , I will see if the range orders exclude expanding ?On MOD ranges, absolutely yes, if the round is classed as a target round like the A-Max. Tons of folks swear by them at range. The SSTs are a no as they are classed as expanding.
It's all a bit blurry though as the rounds look and perform in an identical manner, so if you get a tap on the shoulder, just give them the answer that keeps you out of the cack!
Looks like I'm in the kitchen baking up some humble pie later...I'm rco'ing at a military range tomorrow , I will see if the range orders exclude expanding ?
As above in para 1,Looks like I'm in the kitchen baking up some humble pie later...
Reading the Bisley bible, expanding ammo is not singled out as prohibited, unlike:
1. Tracer, incendiary, armour piercing, armour piercing incendiary (API), depleted uranium ammunition containing any igniferous or explosive substance
2. Projectiles of any construction other than lead core with gilding metal or soft iron jacket, including specifically mono-metallic bullets (ie made from a single metal) except solid lead bullets
