    I'd be happy with just a regular (BTSP) Gameking. Better yet, stretch it out to about 125grains to up the BC just a bit. Quick, somebody get some incriminating photos of the guys at Sierra!

    Guess they didn't last long at Midway.

    The Barnes store also lists the bullet, though no indication whether it's in stock or not.

    Haven't checked other potential sources.

    Sorry LRRPF52, I can send you some when mine come in Monday if you want to check them out. I think they will take up too much case capacity for the Grendel, although I may try them to see. I'll be loading my .260 rem ackly improved and my 6.5 Creedmoor with them. I didn't get many though.

    I talked with the guys from Barnes at SHOT, so I think I'll be able to work something out with them. They did in fact make the 127gr LRX specifically for cartridges like the .260 Rem, 6.5 Creedmoor, .264 Win Mag, etc. I wonder when they'll publish a set of BC values for these.

    .468 for the BC. I would have thought it'd be just a bit higher, but that's not bad.

    Barnes says 1600 fps impact velocity needed for reliable expansion.

    As an example, with a MV of ~2350 fps, expansion should occur out to ~450 yards if .468 BC is correct.
