    My girl friend was practicing shooting off hand with my 6.5x55 FN this evening, shooting off the 40 rounds of SST's I loaded onto paper targets. After such bad results in 30 cal I've resolved not to shoot any SST at game. Nice T-3. At a local shop I can get any caliber T-3 Lite they make except 6.5x55. No idea why that is. If they had one I'd give it to my girlfriend so she doesn't have to borrow my FN.~Muir

    I love my 6.5, it's only new but I think it's taken the "favorite" from my BSA,
    SST's are the only projectiles I can get at the moment. What caused you to loose confidence in them?

    Watched too many deer being wounded with them, requiring multiple hits after what should have been a lethal first round hit. I shoot Game Kings and Game Pro's myself, but the SST's were inexpensive and plentiful so I loaded them for family and friends. I'm a little sorry I did.~Muir

    Fair enough. What weight game kings? I mainly shoot pigs but fallow and reds are also on the menu.

    I shoot 140's. Never a second shot needed on large mule deer and whitetails.~Muir
