Has anyone gotten their hands on these? I canít find any in stock but have been waiting a long time to try some. If anyone knows where I can find a box or two, please let me know.

From what I've read on another forum they're not out yet for the consumer market. They had a minor redesign which is why the went from 155 to 156 and required more testing.

Unless something has changed I'm expecting July or August at the earliest. One comment on rokslide estimates a fall release.

What are you planning to run them in?

I’m thinking about spinning a 7 twist for these in 6.5 SAUM.

Sierra states 7.5 on their 150ís. It may work with 156 but Iím not basing anything off of Sierra again. Been there with the 110ís.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I knew about them doing some tweaking before release but I saw them listed on Natchez SS and Grafs, but they show ďout of stock.Ē I havenít been doing any shooting or loading for a couple months and thought I missed out on the initial release. If theyíre even showing up on these web stores, I wonder if theyíre about to drop?

FWIW - I know some guys involved in the testing and they all had terrific results with 7.5 twist barrels. No need for a 7 twist, imo. Besides, you never know when you might want to run some lightweight pill on occasion.
