I ran the 129gr ABLR through my Creedmoor to verify performance both near and far today. It did well, just as I expected. The 142gr ABLR I only ran slow today. I'll let my 6.5WSM push it for the fast load since it'll be 400fps faster. I think the 129 is perfect out of the Creedmoor but might be a tad light for the magnums. 142gr ABLR looks to be some what more capable in the magnums. If I can find some Trailboss I'll test them even slower but I think they'll do just fine down to 1300fps as advertised.

Nice, cool test Scott. Those look great out of your 6.5 CM.

Good to see these put through the jugs.

I am considering a 6.5 CM myself and the 129 ABLR for hunting with the 129g Interlock for plinking and feral animal culling are in the thinking.

Thanks.

This is very interesting... I just setup a 6.5x284 and have a load using the 142gn ABLR. I'm looking forward to using this gun for a few years.

I can't see how you wouldn't like it Bob.

I just purchased a Christensen in the 6.5CM and using the 129 ABLR I have 6 diff loads with 3 powders ready for the range. For me this will be deer gun out to where I'm comfortable and paper and rocks beyond that.
When I run the numbers the 129 appears to beat the 142 due to the added velocity in the CM. In my 6.5x284 I still will use the heavier 6.5 bullets.
