Glad to see you've got it at last! What do you think of it? I've been using 120 gn Norma BT's in my Varberger 6.5x55, and have been impressed so far.
i like it alot its one of the best rifles i have shot i picked up on sunday and and got a roe that morning with norma 150gr soft points very accurate
Thought you'd like it!
use norma b /tips in 6.5 and my 308 and meat damage ok 50pence size holes on exit
Try a heavier and slower bullet if you are concerned about meat damage. Also avoid BT's and stick to good old fashioned SP's, they are cheaper to start with and are just as accurate but don't go too light, keep them 165gr and above unless you load your own and just reduce the charge and run the 150gr'ers out a bit (no much) slower.
You'll find that you'll still keep the MPBR at +-2"/3" out to 200 yards or more. . . depends, but more than adequate for hunting deer.
