    What is everyone using in 6.5x47

    just wondering what bullets you guys would recommend for roe and fallow in the 100 -130grn thinking of the barnes tsx but just wanted to see what others are using

    I have used the Sierra 120g for roe in my 6.5x47 but would look to the 100 or 120 grain TTSX or TSX under ideal circumstances or the 125g Partition. Have a look at the following link about the 6.5x55 for a detailed report on most of the choices

    I have used the 120gr Sierra, 125gr Partition and 130gr Accubond. All have worked well on muntjac, roe and fallow, but I would lean towards the 125gr partition. So far, it doesn't seem to make much difference what load I shoot through this rifle, but at longer range on paper the 123gr A-max has been the best performer.

    A good friend uses Hornady 129gn SST SKU: 26202 with a recipe of CCI BR primer & Reloder 15.

    i would say 123gn Amax, but that would only wind people up!
