Thanks to those that know.

Have a 24" 6.5CM coming in.

They run just as well as the 140 hybrids, I see no reason to pick one over the other.  No more and no less recoil, wind is virtually the same.  The biggest difference is you may save a smidge on elevation to 1200 yards or so.   I did quite a bit of testing with them when they first came out and they shot well, but I will just stick to what works and that is the 140 hybrid for me.  If I was starting fresh I would probably run the 130s.  Best thing I could tell you is buy whatever is cheapest and save a few pennies.

Have a 1-9 twist Lilja barreled rifle that really likes the 130 AR's. It likes the 120 AMAX a little better, like .01-.03", but I like the ballistics of the 130 better. In my load testing I really didn't notice much sensitivity to seating depth. That made load work up nice and easy.

I will keep shooting them.

Shooting them in my 6.5x47 with 39 of Varget. Shoots same ragged hole.

Seem to work well for me out of my .260.

I use them in comps and even took a deer with them last year. Seem to be a pretty well rounded bullet.

I like them out of my 6.5 Creedmoor. Getting a hammer of a load at 2840fps out of a 22" barrel.

Same windage as heavier bullets but with less elevation drop.
