I have been shooting SMK69 grain bullets in my bull barred target ar for some time and I am impressed. However, lately, they are difficult to find. There appears to be a new Sierra 69 grain bullet out or I have just discovered it. They are a tad more expensive but their BCs are higher as well. The bullet has a polymer tip. Anyone experienced shooting these and if so how do they compare. My barrels all have m4 feeds.
My only concern with them is that to keep them at mag length, you have to load them deeper into the brass. As I've not tried them, maybe that's a good thing or maybe that will limit the case capacities on some powders. Time and the marketplace will tell.
I had no problems finding the 69 SMK:
But yes- the 69 TMK is out. It's still a little early for all the testing etc to see, out in the field, how they work.
