Has anyone tried it yet and how did it shoot?
I have the aframe ammo and it shoots okay in my Accumark.

Been thinking about ordering some from Midway along with the 140 Bergers, although I keep putting it off because I still have several feet of snow on my range and would need snow shoes and a snowmobile! >:(

Have you seen it for sale anywhere else?

Anyone yet? I have even tried googling to see if anyone has tried it. You guys need to break down and buy a box or two and try them out so I donít have to:)

Last few times I bought ammo online that is where I bought it. They had Aframes for $63 but since gone up.

Even after shipping. Their shipping is a little high. They are usually quick and everything I have ordered from them has came fairly well packed.

I got my SPís today. They look more like the Spire Point or Interlock SP rather than the Spitzer SPís from what I have seen with the .257 and .300.
Anyone else noticed this?

I have the mark v ULW and the accuracy results were less than desirable. 2Ē-3Ē @ 100 yds. Iíve tried all the factory loads, I donít handload, and only the 127 gr Barnes LRX are accurate for my rifle. They are 1/2Ē or less @ 100 yds. I consistently put 3 shot groups at 500 yds in 3-5Ē. I believe it was member OregonmarkV who told me a year ago to stop trying other loads when I have such great accuracy with the LRX. He was and is right! I really love the accuracy and terminal results of Berger VLDís for whitetails, mule deer and antelope in my 257 Wby, 270 Winchester, 300 Wby and 300 win mag. It just seems my 6.5-300 Wby only likes the one factory load. Every animal Iíve shot with it dropped where it was hit. Dead is dead so I really shouldnít fret that it doesnít like my favorite bullet.
If you are arguing with an idiot and someone passes by, they don't know who's the idiot.

With waiting 10 minutes in between shots. I took 7 shots today. First was with a clean barrel. Next three were about 1 1/2 inches. I liked where the vertical impact was so I adjusted to the left. Then my daughter called and since I was outside my cell service was spotty. I forgot I adjusted 4 clicks already and gave another 4 clicks left, oops. Fired and was about 2Ē from center. Then I knew what I did and adjusted 4 clicks back to correct my accidental 8 clicks left.
This was a bummer cause the next two shots were very close but since I took the first shot and was off from the get go I had a 3 shot group of about 2 1/2Ē. That was totally my dumb fault.
Grouped better than the Aframes and had less noticeable recoil. They are rated at 3304fps.
