After talking to Lakey last night re Sika Stags in the rut. Im looking for a good bullet head to load for my 6.5 x 55 for just that situation. At present I am using 120 Sierra Pro hunters with 49 grains of N160 which has been a superb combination on Roe knocking them flat with no runners and no meat damage. I used the same on the two prickets the other night but as Im looking to get more land with the possibility of Sika on it I would like something with a bit my 'poke' in order to stop any chance of a runner in the rut.
I still want to if possible use N160 and would imagine bullet head from 150-160 grains, maybe a round nose would be best? does anyone have any ideas of a suitable bullet head to use?
