After waiting for 18 months finally got some 6.5  120 e-tips to try in my swede, i hope they work like i want them to. Will keep you posted on the results.

How fast will you be pushing the 120s from your Swede?  My results with impact velocities down to around 2800 (out of my Weatherbys) have been spectacular, with full expansion.  I'll be curious to see how they perform at lower impact velocities.

Nosler manual says 3000 fps at muzzle with h 4350 or rl 19 i expect around 2400 to 2500 at impact , so should be good  up to about 250 to 300 yds if the accuracy is there. Had the best luck just following manual on other loads

Sounds good. For some reason I was thinking a few hundred fps slower for those. Should have checked the manual myself. The Swede is a great little round.
