    I know a few guys that did some of the pre-production testing of the 6mm version and the reports were pretty good. However I'm not sure if it's worth the price to me for the performance, will have to test a bit and see. Biggest thing is if they are truly as consistent as advertised, then yes they probably will be worth it.

    Interesting idea, curious as to if they are really that much better than other match bullets.

    ^I agree. If they are as perfect and consistent as claimed I'll probably try some out.

    So the local gun shop got a shipment today of 6.5mm Atip. The packaging was hilarious, plastic trays holding each bullet in isolation. It looked like they were packaged warheads.
