After working up a pretty good load for the Swede I shot all of the Nosler 140 grain long range bullets I had and haven't been able to get any more locally. 

I tried some Hornady 143 grain ELDX bullets and didn't find a load that was as good as the Noslers. 

Yesterday, I got a couple boxes of 130 grain Sierra Game Changers. I am hoping they shoot as good as the 140 grain Match Kings did. I have some loaded and am planning on getting them out in the morning to see how they do. If they shoot good, I will be using them for Antelope and Deer. 

I should have done this a month ago, but I usually wait until the last minute for everything.

I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.

Which nosler bullet where you using? I have pretty good stock of 140gr RDF HPBT and 140gr HPBT. I don't have any of the 142gr ABLR, if that was what you were using.


Let me know, if either of the 140gr I have, would solve issue and I'll send you some, priority mail.

Thanks Robert. They were ABLR's. 
I'm sure I could order some and have them in time for hunting, but I have been wanting to try the new Sierra's every since I heard about them and I think I can find a load that I can work with. 

Thanks for the offer though.
