I think it would hold up better in a lower velocity such as in a 6.5 Creedmoor, just an assumption.

Congrats on that deer.

We shall see.. I think at lower speeds on deer sized stuff they should be dynamite.

Thanks guys. I agree that the bullet would likely have looked much different at a lower impact speed. Started at 2750 from a Creedmoor the impact velocity would have been nearly 500fps slower. Kinda wish my rifle liked the ABLR as well as the Hornady now, accuracy just wasn't there with that bullet in this rifle.

I like shooting the 143s at steel out past Ft. Mudge and it did fine on my caribou last fall....

But i just got my shopping list for loading the 6.5 and the 130AB was on it. If I can get them shooting well...they're up to bat this fall.

I have yet to try this bullet on game. I have ran a box or two of the precision hunters through my 6.5 CM at paper, and they shot very well. Next Deer season I’m gonna try these and the 129 ABLR. I just hope I don’t have the issues that some have had getting the ABLR to shoot. I’m still a big fan of the 130 AB though, so may try them.

Makes total sense. Probably not for my 6.5mm Bee at 3250 fps.
