Thread: Best bullet for fallow 6.5 55

    Best bullet for fallow 6.5 55

    Looking for your views on different bullets types and weights in 6.5 for use on fallow deer I am using 140 grain sst at the minute they do the job but sometimes a lot of damage.

    Try changing to a 140gr Partition or a 139 gr PPU soft point

    SST or Super Shock Tips. I would suggest Sierra 140gr Gameking, economical,generally accurate. Mind you nothing wrong with PPU.

    Anyone use hornady interbond

    I'm using a 100 grain TTSX in a 6.5 Lapua. Stunning performance compared to the 120 Nosler BT I had used in the past. MV will be very similar.
    So much to learn and so little time left
