Hornady Extreme Low Drag Ammunition

Darn it, Hornady stopped making my favorite load in 6.5 Creedmoor, the 140 grain (gr.) A-Max Match load. This is the ammunition we used about a year ago when Ruger introduced a few of us to the new Ruger Precision Rifle at FTW Ranch in Texas.
We shot the rifles with this ammunition and got our dope worked out to “way out there”, in my case to 1400 yards. Fortunately, I was able to lay in a small supply of this ammo before discovering it was being dropped from the catalog.
But wait, all is not lost. The reason my favorite load isn’t available anymore is because it has been replaced by an even better one that, as far as I can tell, is even more accurate but is so close in trajectory to the old load that I can substitute it without having to make major changes to my dope. What’s not to like?
