6.5mm, 129gr Bonded Blem Bullets at Midsouth — $13.54 per 100

OEM Blem Bullet 6.5mmForum member Ron W. (aka FClassRon) let us know that Midsouth is offering some high-quality, polymer-tipped 6.5mm bullets at half the normal price. Ron told us: “Midsouth is running a great sale this weekend on 6.5mm bullets with polymer tips: $13.54 per 100! I ordered similar bullets in 7mm a few weeks ago and the only blem I saw was light staining on the jackets (as shown in Midsouth’s description).” The bullets, (item 285-26209B100), are listed as: “6.5MM .264 DIA 129GR BIG GAME BONDED 100 CT BLEM”. Current sale price is $13.54, marked down from $27.08 — That’s a full 50% off normal price.

If you shoot a 6.5×47 Lapua, a 6.5×55 Swede, Rem .260, or 6.5×284, this bullet should work well for you. Here’s a chance to get a versatile, high-BC bullet that can be used effectively for BOTH both hunting and paper-punching. These blem bullets have cosmetic defects only. If you don’t mind some staining on the bullet jackets you can save a bundle compaired to normal pricing.
