    Federal 6.5x55 140g ammunition

    Dear Members

    Just wondered if anyone was experiencing excessive carcass damage with the above ammunition. The bullet head is copper with lead tip, but painted a blue/grey colour.

    Previous ammunition were of a standard copper colour and experienced no damage, any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Evening Dave,
    I have used this ammunition in the past and found it very good. I think that it all comes down to shot placement, i always take a heart shot and if you hit a rib on the way in, then it will make a mess.
    All the animals i shot with this ammo dropped on the spot, so no complaints from me.

    All the best trev.
