I'm seeing $74 for a box of 100 6.5 140 gr versus $45 for a box of 100 6.5 150 gr Scenars. $350 for a box of 1000 scenars. I've got a load for my 6.5 X 284 that is extremely accurate. Consistent from barrel to barrel. Given the barrel life of 1,000 to 1,200 rounds I don't see a lot of up side to trying every new magic bullet/powder that comes along. Yeah barrels are a consumable but I prefer not to consume them profligately chasing something that may or may not work any better let alone as well. I'll leave that to those with more money.
