I'm sorry to say while they may be uniform you SIMPLY do not make what appears to be worse bullet BC wise, increase pricing and claim they are a bit more consistent than before while competition on the market has either lower price or better performance while being completely competitive or comparable in consistency department. Even for us European shooters yellow brand is more and more appealing regardless of extreme cost here. And if i want to shoot cheap and just as good there is always Nosler bullet.
We are not talking here about Xy company which just started out but about Lapua which already makes great bullets and reasons to switch a working load with 139gr scenar in favour of what appears to be a lesser bullet with higher cost - in my book that sure doesn't compute.
I just bought 1000. Midway puts things on sale all the time. I'm sure they will shoot.
My sentiments as well. I doubt Lapua would be selling garbage. Yes a High BC is important. But I think a few of you are allowing a number to unduly influence common sense.
I bought a thousand. My 6.5x47 should be shooting in 2-3 weeks. We shall see.
I shot this out to 1100 m with good accuracy results. I originally had the .600 in my calculator and was wondering what the hell was going wrong. I trued it and came up with .542 before lapua released their number. My hold if I remember correctly at my trying distance of 1035 was 11 when I was supposed be getting 10.2 at .6 bc. Nothing was wrong with the round just at the time they were commanding more money than the 139 and supply was iffy. I figured why pay more with short supply when my 139 load performed just as good (slightly better than the 136) and supply and price were more reasonable.
