Ballisticly better, and it wasn’t even close.
I have been an avid shooter most of my life. A few years ago I dabbled in the long range rifle competition series, really to sharpen my skills as an Outdoorsman & hunter. Here I am 2 years later and have completed my first match with G9 6.5 Super Match. I’m fully convinced that this ammunition is truly game changing.
What is does (or doesn’t do) through wind. Reliable speeds and lot loads. Weight of overall cartridge (oz equal lbs and lbs equal pain, especially when you’re humping 200+ rounds for a 2 day match). Added bonus the bullet is absolutely gorgeous. I was able to remove all the external weight from my chassis and still manage my recoil easily for fast follow up shots.
My previous ammunition was a 140 grain BTHP with a BC of. 580 MV 2550… The G9 6.5 Super Match has a BC of. 585, MV of 3200 and is only 113 grain. I don’t know how they do it but at point I don’t think it matters. I’m feeding my rifles one cartridge from now on. It feels like cheating. I’m still amazed. This stuff has the better ballistics, if not the best.
