i was wondering if anybody has any data in any of there books for a 140 grain bullet loaded in the 6.5 rem mag i cant find anything except 100&120 grain loads and i am thinking that i may need to go to a 140 for better accuracy.

i guess maybe before i commit to going to a 140 i should run the numbers by you guys to see what you think may be the answer here i have a 1:9 twist in that gun with a 22" barrel i believe and the 120 grain bullets havent shot all that well, i know a few people who own the same gun and use 125 gr noslers with about the same accuracy so i am wondering if going to 140 would help.

all my hard work paid off today i sat in the stand for 15 min and this doe walke out @ about 60 yds and one shot from the 6.5 rem mag with the 130 nosler accubond dropped this deer in its tracks i have never shot an animal that re-acted like that, thanks to everybody for helping out especially dale and ted i am in debt to you guys for your help! i hit a little higher than i wanted to but its not like i wounded it and it got away the bullet was a through and through and considering how much bone that bullet hit i was really surprised it went through but the sectional density is so high on 6.5 mm stuff that now when i think about it i can see why,

I like the pic.  Nice to hear someone is having success.  I won't be able to hunt for at least a month.

we cheated there no dragging involved used our skid steer to carry it from the kill site to the skinning shack where we placed the deer on a gramble and picked up with the skidsteer then we used an electric dewalt saws all to split the deer in half remove the legs and head it works slick.

Good deal!! Thanks for the pic, Pyro.

 

I haven't even seen many deer moving around down here lately. I'll probably be working on the road all hunting season again this year.....

 

Plus 1 on the Sawz All!!!

Good job, Pyro!  I've been very pleased with AB performance on deer and feral hogs, though I haven't tried them on larger animals.  It expands pretty agressively, but doesn't seem to blow apart like Ballistic Tips can, even when shot out of magnum cartridges at fairly close range.  Plus, I've gotten above average accuracy out of all rifles I've tried them in.  They have always exited the animal for me as well.

 

If you discover how to get one of those jobs where you just hunt all the time, please let me know, 'cause I'd like to get a gig like that!

Congrats on your deer!  Nice shooting.

 

While I don't have any experience with the 6.5 Rem Mag, I am pretty well versed on both the .260 Remington and 6.5x284.  The lethality of .264 bullets on deer is nothing short of amazing.  I've taken deer with 120gr. BTs, 129gr. SSTs, and 130gr Partitions and every deer went down just like you mentioned (..."like the deer was struck by lightening").  From 40yds to over 300yds, deer are in trouble if you have this caliber in the stand.

i was very impressed with the accubonds performance, i just wish i could have recovered the bullet i wanted to see how it held together, unfortunately i blew the spine out on that deer as you can see in the picture on page one, so recovery wasnt possble there, but i am quite sure they hold together better than the ballistic tip does.

Nice shot and great job with the reloading.  I will be using my .260 Remington for some routine deer hunt this year.  I will be using Sierra 140 grain gamekings loaded with VV powder.  Offhand I cannot remember the exact amounts, but they were per the Sierra loading manual with the recommended powder.  I used the Hornady OAL gauge and set the bullets from 0.02 to 0.04 inches off of the lands and have tested some, cannot remember offhand which ones (I am at work) with good accuracy.  Will see if I can have that kind of success.  I have since purchased and using the comparator gauge and loaded some .308 cartridges and 7mm-08 cartridges and really like how it works.  I do not like the crummy Lyman 7mm-08 die.  It would not let me even seat the bullet to SAAMI specs, let alone to what the chamber of my Savage 11 wanted.  I had to finish up with the .308 Hornady seating die.  I have since purchased another die set from another company (I think RCBS).  I called Lyman, they forwarded me to their engineer and left a message and I have not heard from them in 2 months.  Like the press ok, but the dies, well at least that one was clearly defective.

I like the rcbs equipment.  Not sure if it is my 270 (i know what is coming here) or the dies, but if I full length size on one set of rcbs dies, it won't work in my rifle.  I can chamber factory ammo or neck length rounds, but not full length.   Guess I need to try a different set of dies (still rcbs) to see what the problem is.  Never had any other problems with rcbs equipment, which is why I like them.  High quality and reliable.

I did indeed trim them afterwards.   I think it may have been something to do with the shoulders.  Been quite a while since I have tried the full length sizing, so I honestly can't remember what the exact problem was.  Will have to try it again and see.
