im planning a Trip out on the red stags during the rut, in England . There are some real big 280-300lb beasts on the ground il be stalking. Having made the decision to solely use a 6.5x55 now days ( blaser R8) I'm concerned it may not have enough grunt to drop a big woodland beast, humanly.
i use Hornady SST ballistic tip-140grain, on just about everything. Any views or experiences on this would be really helpful.
i have bought a box of sako ammo which is 156grain soft point to try. But I'm inclined to think a BT would cause more damage than a heavier soft point.
Look forward to your views.
