Default Bullets

I have a selection of bullets from 60-100 grains. If you're interested shoot me a pm. I also have 7mm, 270, as well. Just wondering but if you have any 6.5mm bullets you don't need we could make some sorts of a trade.

There are plenty of custom bullets available for bench rest and the 65-68 grain work well in a 13.5 to 14 barrel twist. I use Bart's 68 grain flat base and boat tail bullets in my 14 twist. I have used Cheeks, Brunos, and Berger column also with success. Try Accurate Shooter and Bench Rest Central sites for information and buying BR bullets. Good luck and shoot small.

Randy Robinett at BIB Bullets can walk you through the process. His 6mm BR bullets on the .790 and .825 jacket lengths are really, really good.
