130 tmk's ???

130 tmk's, Anyone use them?  How are they.  Got a chance to pick up 1500 same lot.  Plan on shooting them in both the creed and 6.5x47L
The only thing better than me spending my own money, is my friends spending it for me

Like'em, can usually find a node faster than the 140s node, which means flatter flights.
Also working with Game Tipped 130s (GTK).
Little more expensive than ELD-Ms but getting 1500 TMK at a time sounds like a winner.

Good bullets! One hole accuracy, jumped or jammed!

Used them in a factory Savage 10 last year and they worked well. As HufD63 mentioned, the seating depth wasn't overly critical for me either. And as bob_atl mentioned, speed can be better than 140gr bullets as well. I was able to get ~2830 something fps out of a 24" barrel if I remember correctly. IMO, if your wind reading skills are good at distance, they can make a very accurate load, mine ain't, that's why I have gone back to 140gr bullets, I need all the help I can get...
