    Favourite bullet for 6.5 55 on deer

    What is your favourite 6.5 55 bullet for deer

    140 grains Hornady SST at approximately 800 m/s works just fine for me on roe, fallow and red deer. Not to much damage and most of the deer goes straight down on the spot.

    On 200+ it could need a bit more power though.

    Best all round is 140g partition

    There are two types of shooters - the fulfilled and successful ones - with a 7 X 57 and those poor souls who have not yet decided to get one!
